KSA Election 2011: The unofficial results

By Chris Yee

The results for the Kwantlen Student Association’s 2011 general election and Multipass referendum were unofficially released on Monday, Feb. 7.

The official election results are pending submission of campaign expenses and a report from the chief returning officer, Fred Schiffner, who said the report should be released Feb. 14.

The elections were held online, and according to Schiffner, produced the highest turnout rate since the court-ordered general elections of 2006.

However, the anonymity of the online election process raises potential questions about the validity of the results and possible abuses of the system.

Schiffner said he will be reporting on the pros and cons of the online election system.
