Referendum for Online Voting

There will be a referendum to amend the MISU Constitution on Thursday 22nd November (Week 11). Students will be asked if they agree or disagree with introducing online voting in MISU elections, by-elections and referenda. The current system for voting is paper ballots and long distance voting, and the proposal is to use online voting going forward, with the provision for paper ballot/long distance voted if needed. By changing Article 11.5 Voting, Articles 11.6 Long Distance Voting and 11.7 Counting will be amended also.

The current MISU Constitution can be found here, the sections which are proposed to change are pages 22 - 24.

The proposed Articles 11.5, 11.6 and 11.7 can be read here. The proposed accompanying schedule to the MISU Constitution, Schedule 7 is also available to read here.

Printouts of the current Constitution, proposed Articles and proposed schedule to the MISU Constitution can be collected from MISU Reception.

Polling stations will be open on the Limerick campus between 8.30am and 6.30pm and on the Thurles campus between 11am and 1pm. Students votes are vital

The competition is aimed at young people between 12-25 years of age to encourage the discussion of drug and alcohol related issues.

The competition is supported by the Department of Health, the HSE, the Ana Liffey Drug Project, Healthy Ireland and the Drugs.ie website. Drugs.ie is Ireland’s National Drug and Alcohol Information and Support Website. The drugs.ie site has in excess of 120,000 unique Irish visitors each year and over 500,000 international visitors.

The Drugs.ie “Let’s Talk About Drugs” National Youth Media Awards is an annual drug education competition that aims to help students explore and understand various issues relating to drug and alcohol use in Irish society. To enter, students are asked to research topics or share their personal experiences and create either: a short video, an audio podcast, a news article; or a poster. The age categories for entering are: 12-14; 15-17; 18-21; 22-25.
The competition gives students a platform to create an original piece of material that can then be used to educate other young people.

The themes for the 2018 competition will be divided into two categories based on age. This year, we want students between 18 and 25 years of age to discuss Club Drugs and Performance and Image Enhancing Drugs (PIEDs).

Winners from each of the four age categories will receive a €250 One4All gift card and the overall winner of both the 12-17 and 18-25 age categories will each receive a prize of €1,000 One4All gift cards. Winners will also have their work published on drugs.ie.

 

More information about the competition and examples of previous entries can be found at drugs.ie/awards.
