ECU Student Guild celebrates the success of its first online senate election with support from MSL

22nd November 2018 - Edith Cowan University Student Guild celebrated the results from their first fully online election following its decision to use MSL’s election system as part of their drive to promote the interests of their members. The Guild encourages as many students as possible to positively contribute to a vibrant, active and effective organisation, evidenced by the turnout of voters in this year’s October elections.

Membership Solutions Ltd (MSL) is delighted to welcome the Edith Cowan University Student Guild to the MSL community and to its growing number of Australian clients. The Guild recently chose MSL to provide its new online election system; with an implementation period of three weeks, both project teams worked closely together to deliver the Guild’s first online Senate election in October.

Edith Cowan University has around 30,000 students and is located on multiple campuses around Perth, Western Australia, with the largest in the town of Joondalup some 20 miles north of Perth. The Guild represents both postgraduates and undergraduates at the University and also runs the Student Council.

Having multiple campuses means elections use to be a large-scale exercise in setting up election booths, organising staffing and monitoring. By taking the elections online we reduced a lot of the costs involved in election set up and made the voting system more accessible to external students and students doing practical placements.

The MSL team is delighted to have supported the Edith Cowan University Student Guild with their first online election. Both teams worked hard to deliver a seamless experience for candidates and voters, evidenced by the level of engagement throughout the campaigning and the voting periods. We very much look forward to helping the Guild with their next election and supporting them with future student engagement projects.

Colin Watson, CEO of Membership Solutions
