Problems with the online voting system have now been resolved with less than 20 votes cast. Due to the low turnout overnight the returning officer, ICU President Stephen Brown, has taken the decision to allow them to continue to run, in the belief that the overnight votes would not affect the results. Voting remains open and will close at 23:59 on Wednesday.
The problems were caused solely by the lack of a Re-open Nominations Candidate, which meant some elections had no candidates, causing the system to throw errors when voting. The lack of RON also meant the elections were unconstitutional for the first twenty votes overnight.
Results, due to be announced on the 15th May at the Guilds AGM, may be delayed by the absence of 3% of the electorate, who are
colouring in and drinking doing fieldwork out of range of internet connections. Voting may be re-opened at the end of May to allow just over 100 students from Earth Science & Engineering to cast their votes when they return.
