*URGENT* UPDATED Notice of Referendum #2

Hi everyone, 

We are asking students to please disregard the second notice of referendum sent to you all yesterday via email (March 14). Upon further review, the TGSA Board decided to split the ballot into two questions. This is reflected in the updated version of the notice which is attached to this email. It includes information on the voting method, dates, question(s), and brief statements from the ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ representatives. Please read through the entire updated version of the notice before voting begins this Friday, March 18. Yesterday’s copy is now null and void. 

Furthermore, this is the final wording of the ballot, approved by the TGSA Board at an extraordinary meeting held this morning. We will not be changing the ballot again. We appreciate everyone who voiced their concerns and offered suggestions. 

If you have any questions about the voting method, please contact our CRO, Morgan Bell at morgan.bell@mail.utoronto.ca

Best, 
Mia Theocharis 
TGSA President 

Ps. On Monday, February 14, 2022 all students received the first notice of referendum via email (this can also be accessed under the “Referendum 2022” page on the website) and on Friday, March 4, 2022 the Referendum Committee held a Town Hall to discuss with members the proposed changes to the constitution.
