MSL to provide elections platform for the North East Scotland College Students’ Association

North East Scotland College Students' Association

28th May 2015 - MSL is delighted to announce that it has been chosen to provide the online elections facility for the North East Scotland College Students’ Association. With their presidential elections starting in May, the Students’ Association has taken advantage of the straightforward implementation process and flexibility offered by the MSL Elections module’s online voting, polling booth, monitoring and reporting functions.  

North East Scotland College is a further and higher education college with campuses and learning centres in Aberdeen and across Aberdeenshire offering a range of full time, part time, flexible learning and online courses to over 21,000 students.  The Students’ Association is run by college students with elected presidents and vice presidents who represent the student body on the college Board of Management. The presidents also lead an elected committee that represents different needs and requirements of the diverse student body and organises a wide variety of events open to all students.

The MSL Elections module provides a secure, robust and flexible voting system suitable for elections, polling and referenda, conforming to the Electoral Reform Society’s ‘ERS97’ Single Transferable Vote guidelines and with NUS guidance on fair representation. The solution can also accommodate different voting systems including First Past The Post and Scottish Single Transferable Vote and provides a real-time voting stats dashboard and touchscreen polling booth application.

Agnieszka Pawlita, Student Association Manager at North East Scotland College said, “We are so pleased that we decided to use the MSL voting system. We had the biggest turn out at this election and that is mostly thanks to the system. The system itself is very straightforward, easy to set up and maintain. All students who used the system found it easy to vote. The MSL staff were always helpful and supportive. The results were delivered within 10 minutes. We will definitely recommend the system and we will use this system again.”

MSL Chief Executive, Colin Watson, commented “We are delighted to be working with North East Scotland College Students’ Association and welcome them to the MSL community at this exciting time as they launch their first online election. MSL is well established in the HE students’ union sector and has a growing presence among Further Education establishments. The addition of North East Scotland College to our client base further demonstrates that our software and services are valued across both further and higher education.

It's an evolving process - but we've made a start with a new logo, corporate style and, coming soon, a new website.
