Residence students came out to vote Feb. 2, with a landslide win for Rez United with 69 per cent of the votes.
Chief electoral officer Kimalee Phillip confirmed that 1,197 students voted in this year’s election.
RRRavolution came in second with 252 votes and Residents’ First received 117.
The Rideau River Residence Association’s (RRRA) main objective, as listed in the preamble of the constitution, is “to meet and serve the needs of students”.
Among the teams eager to do just that is Rez United.
“Residence is a community. Our objective is to unite Carleton’s residence community, hence the name, Rez United,” said Chris Infantry, the slate’s presidential candidate.
Members of the Residents’ First slate for the upcoming Rideau River Residence Association (RRRA) elections said they are focusing their campaign platform around five main goals.
One of their ideas for next year is to create a safety shuttle bus that runs Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights to both Gatineau and the Byward Market.
The Residents’ First candidates said they want to make this a free and safe alternative to and from student “hot spots.”
