Each spring, the Executive members of the UMGSA are decided in the annual General Election. Every graduate student enrolled at the University of Manitoba gets a vote, and candidates campaign on issues that affect graduate student life. If you’re interested in running in a future election, drop by our office during business hours from 9am to 4pm and chat with us about how to submit your name.
