It’s that time of year again – AMS Elections! This year, your AMS is asking you to VOTE YES on FIVE referendum.

You might ask, “What is a referendum?” In short, a referendum is a campus wide vote on important issues. Referendum are one of the most impactful and important ways in which we can exercise our right to vote to inform and implement significant changes to our community. The U-Pass that you know and love is an example of a campus-wide referendum, as well as the fee collected to build the Nest.

This year’s referenda are:
1. SASC Fee Referendum: Vote YES to independent, accessible sexual assault support on campus.
2. Indigenous Students Fee Referendum: Vote YES to a campus that’s inclusive of Indigenous students.
3. U-Pass Term Extension: Vote YES to affordable and sustainable trips to/from campus.
4. Graduating Class Fee Reduction: Vote YES to reducing the Graduating Class Fee.
5. AMS By-Law Amendments: Vote YES to more efficient student government

For these referendum to pass, they need to reach quorum. Quorum is the minimum number of student votes needed for the referendum to be successful and binding. For the referendum to reach quorum, 8% of active Society members need to vote in favour. This year, the number of students needed to reach quorum is 4572. In addition to reaching quorum, Bylaw Amendments need two-thirds of the votes, in favour, to be approved.

Vote from March 11th – 15th here: https://amsvoting.as.it.ubc.ca/
