As your union, we are here to provide a platform for any club, society & project to run an efficient, democratic election to appoint the best people and create a strong committee to help deliver activities. We have different systems in place to make the election process easy and accessible for our student groups. We run online elections throughout the year in Spring, Summer, and Autumn Terms.
An alternative to running your elections through our online platform is organising a general meeting for your membership to vote in committee officers or through our co-opting – more information on these processes will be sent out Friday 7th October. All committee positions included in your elections must be part of your club, society, or project constitution.
When are the next round of elections?
Please see below our key dates and deadlines for the Autumn Elections. Any Club, Society or Project with existing vacant positions will automatically be added to the eVoting platform, unless you opt-out.
