IGNITE President Monica Khosla, who won her position in a tight race a year ago, is running for re-election this year.
She will face off against Margarita Bader, who started putting up her election posters on Monday morning when IGNITE candidates were allowed to launch their formal campaigning.
That will make it so there are at least two female candidates. If they are the only two running, then it will be identical to last year when just Khosla and Alisa Lim — two female students — ran for the presidency.

The candidate who is elected president will be leading the student union into the fall when optional student fees are scheduled to come into play.
IGNITE will be fighting to get student support as those enrolled at Humber College and the University of Guelph-Humber could have the option to defund several of their services, clubs and the student government itself.
The Avro Post has contacted both president candidates with the same interview questions and will report further details as they are received.
