The Ubyssey's breakdown of this year's AMS elections results

This year, 10,329 students voted in AMS elections — the highest turnout in three years. All four vice-president races were won by current AMS employees while outgoing VP Academic and University Affairs Eshana Bhangu (VPAUA) won the presidency.

We’ve broken down the results.

Winners in contested AMS elections are determined by the Condorcet method in which voters rank the candidates in each race. Each candidate is then matched up in head-to-head races with every other candidate and voters’ rankings are used to determine the winner of the matchup. The overall winner is the candidate who wins the most head-to-head races.

Bhangu emerged from a crowded field as the elected AMS president, winning all seven of her head-to-head matchups by margins of more than one thousand votes. The candidate who came closest to beating Bhangu was Remy the Rat who only lost his matchup with Bhangu. VP External Saad Shoaib came in third, winning three majorities. The graph below shows Bhangu’s commanding margins against each of the other presidential candidates.

In the race for VPAUA, outgoing AMS Strategy and Governance Lead Dana Turdy emerged on top, winning all three of her matchups against Anisha Sandhu, Kamil Kanji and Anushreya Arora. Turdy is the only elected vice-president this year who doesn’t currently serve as an associate vice president.

The other three VP races saw associate VPs getting elected to the VP position. AVPs are hired, part-time, paid positions within the AMS. The race for VP external saw Associate VP Campaigns and Community Erin Co defeat colleague in the VP External’s office and AVP External James Cabangon and newcomer Sanchay Jain.

In the race for VP finance, AVP Finance Rita Jin defeated Interfraternity Council President Noah Jassmann and Angad Singh Gill.

In the only uncontested race, Associate VP Administration Ben Du was elected VP administration with 87.5 per cent of voting students approving.
