Opt-out of our Leadership Elections 2023!
We encourage all clubs, societies and projects to run their elections via our online eVoting platform to give all members the opportunity to engage with nominations and voting. This removes any admin for the current committee and allows your student group to run elections in the most democratic and effective way.
If you choose to run elections outside of this process, you will need to opt-out using the CSP Elections Opt-Out Form. This needs to be completed by one of your principal committee members (Chair/Treasurer/Secretary) before 2pm Friday 3rd February.
Why run your CSP elections online
Your club, society or project will automatically be part of our Spring Election electoral roll. This means all active positions in your committee become part of the nomination and eVoting platform used during these elections.
Running your election online has a range of benefits for your club members and committee:
No administration for your committee!
Democracy! Running elections online creates the most democratic process for electing committee members, giving all members the chance to run for a position
Accessibility – we give all CSP members the chance to nominate themselves for a position and engage in voting for their committee
Hit the ground running – successfully elected students automatically get uploaded to eActivities with relevant permissions ready for the start of term
- Get Ready - electing committee members during these elections mean they will receive a full on-boarding process with training opportunities to get a head start for next year
