Students get to grill their prospective representatives during a Thompson Rivers University Student Union all-candidates meeting on Friday.
Debates may not get as heated as in past elections, however, since most of the top positions have just one student running.
"There's not a lot of candidates in this election so I'm not anticipating there will be a large turnout," said Nathan Lane, TRUSU executive director.
"Some years we've had 40 candidates and some years we've had 15 candidates. It ranges year to year."
This year, 16 candidates are running for 13 spots with the newly formed graduate student representative seat currently vacant.
One candidate is running for each of the positions of president, vice president external, vice president finance and international students' representative. They also all belong to the "Your Vote=Your Voice" slate.
During Friday's debate, an electoral committee will quiz each candidate on three topics. Union members then get to question prospective representatives from the floor.
The forum starts at noon in the TRUSU lecture hall.
Voting takes place Monday and Tuesday and the newly elected candidates take over on May 1.
