The results of the 2014 SRA general election were released on March 13 after two days of online polling. With the results, the Elections Department also revealed they had miscalculated the number of seats in Nursing and Science: Nursing should have two seats instead of one, and Science should have six seats instead of seven.

According to a memo from the Elections Department, the mistake was “admittedly the result of human error.”

The error was brought to the Elections Committee, who voted to hold another election for a second Nursing representative. Despite the mix-up, the committee determined that a separate election will not be held for Science representatives. The top six candidates for SRA Science will be part of the Assembly, while the seventh, Mike Cheung, will not. Cheung was separated by four votes from Patricia Kousoulas, the sixth-place Science representative elected.

Before polling took place, a number of seats had already been acclaimed. The maximum number of seats for Kinesiology (2), Engineering (6) and Arts & Science (1) were acclaimed,  and one seat of two for Nursing was acclaimed.

The results of the election are as listed below (elected representatives bolded). Candidates have five business days to make appeals before the results are made official.
