Last March of SigmaD: Also, AGM reminder

Posted on 9th February 2011

Greetings CompSoc,

Just to remind you that our AGM is tomorrow at 7pm in S0.13. Attendance is probably compulsory if you're running for a position.

Is there a way to vote that doesn't involve leaving a computer I hear you ask. Why yes, there is indeed.
You can go to and vote online/cast a proxy vote. Note that if you intend to do this, you need to do so BEFORE 12:00 today(9th Feb), so the person responsible(me) has time to collate this data before the election.
