Polls are now open – Vote! Vote! Vote!



It’s been weeks in the making, with town halls, open forums and lots of campaigning, and the time has come for you, the undergraduate students of Laurier, to cast your vote in #LaurierVotes 2017! Last year only 26% of undergraduate students voted for the President, Board of Directors, Board of Governors and the Senate – let’s beat that this year!
