2024 Elections - Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How many seats are open in the 2024 elections?

The exact number is to be determined, but there will be at least 4 open seats.

Q: How does HUB keep the election process independent and verify the results?
HUB Cycling uses the independent online voting platform Simply Voting Inc. which is a full-service provider of secure, hosted online elections. 

Over 4000 organizations from municipalities to universities to unions rely on Simply Voting for safely executing their elections. 

HUB Cycling staff oversee the ballot process and once the election has started until the day it is completed, only Simplyvoting Inc. has access to the results. 

Once the elections are over, Simply Voting sends a verified results report to HUB Cycling. These results are then passed on to a board-appointed elections officer (a board member not running in the election or an individual not associated with the election like a former board member) who will then announce the results at the AGM.

Q: How can people be involved if they run for the Board but are not elected?
There are many valuable ways that people can volunteer with HUB Cycling, from being an advisor in their area of expertise to joining a local committee to advance cycling advocacy, to supporting our education and events programming. To find out more go to bikehub.ca/volunteer

Q: In a year that requires a new board president to be elected, what happens if the newly elected President doesn’t get enough votes to also win a board member seat?

If the newly elected President didn't get enough votes to also win a board "member" seat, they would still be president and the highest-ranked 4 Board members would be elected.

We will not be electing a new Board President in 2024.

Q: Can someone run for President but not Board of Directors?

Yes. The president and at large director elections are separate. The president is a member of the board, but doesn't need to run as a director as well if they choose not to.
