Christopher Yendt (87.4 per cent), Antonio Sergi (76 per cent) and Yi Gao (69.4 per cent) will comprise the new board of directors.

The referendum motion was also voted down, meaning students won’t be required to pay a $32.00 flat fee, to be charged to all undergraduate students, to support the Brock University Students’ Union Programing Levy.

Of 3,528 votes, 72 per cent were against the proposal.

In total, 4,199 students (23.4 per cent) voted over three days. The 2014 executive will take office May 1.
