Ladies and gentlemen, that time of year is upon us at last, the tension is palpable, the woody scent of unbridled ambition lingers in the doorways and hallways of RSH, EPH and beyond, yes  – MCR election fever is here. A brand new MCR committee will be elected on Sunday 17 November 2013. We are looking for candidates to run for all of the positions (detailed below) and I would encourage as many people as possible to get involved. Students here for just one year are just as welcome to run as students studying for MPhils. or DPhils.

PUTTING YOURSELF FORWARD

If you’re interested in running for a post, please email the Returning Officer (president (at) st-annes-mcr.org.uk)  to nominate yourself with [MCR ELECTION] in the Subject.
You will also need to get someone else in the MCR to second your nomination, also via email to the Returning Officer.

 

Feel free to compose an A4 manifesto (with an illustration/photograph as desired) and send this to me by email as a pdf document (also please pidge two hard copies to the President). Note that students are NOT to circulate or post any election material elsewhere, including online.

 

Nominations close on Saturday 16 November at 5.00pm.

 

The names of the candidates will then be circulated by email and displayed in the EPH Common Room along with any submitted manifestos.

 

VOTING

 

IN PERSON

 

At the election candidates who have put themselves forward for contested positions will field questions by voters in a very informal hustings.

 

There will then be an anonymous ballot. Further details will be circulated nearer the time, but I would strongly encourage you to come and actually hear the candidates speak, ask them questions etc.

 

If there are still positions with no nominations (as has happened in the past) you may put yourself forward at the meeting itself.

 

VIA EMAIL

 

Once the list of candidates has been circulated votes votes can be cast via email by emailing the Returning Officer (again: president (at) st-annes-mcr.org.uk)
