*Note: These are preliminary results, awaiting certification by the UISG Elections Commissioner as defined by the UISG Elections Code.

The recent UISG presidential election worked using an instant-runoff ranked order voting system, in which each student could rank the 4 executive tickets in order of preference, or alternatively not select any additional executive tickets, in which your ballot will become an “exhausted ballot” if your selected executive tickets are eliminated. A ticket needs to  reach 50% of the total votes to be declared the winner.
