What Happens If The All Student Meeting Is Not Quorate?
If the All Student Meeting is not quorate, ideas and policies will be referred to an online All Student Vote.
This usually takes place online, and also has to be quorate (416 students need to vote for the votes to be valid).
Students can vote “Yes”, “No” or “Abstain”, and can leave comments. Anonymous comments from students on liberation concerns can be forwarded by the Liberation Part-Time Officers.
Ideas and policy proposals can also be allocated to the All Student Vote if the All Student Meeting is quorate, but students and Officers cannot come to a decision, or they feel that more student input is needed.
What does it mean to cast an abstention vote?
If you choose to put in an abstention vote, this is because for personal reasons or due to a conflict of interest, you do not feel able to cast a “yes (for)” or “no (against)” the motion in question. In this case, the vote to abstain simply means you are contributing towards quoracy.
