Elections are an exciting time at the union, it's students chance to elect other students who they think will make a possitive change at the union! It's natural that socities want to get involved, but there's a few rules that societies and society leaders need to follow to keep it a fair and democratic process:
- Candidates might want to speak to your members at meetings/via your social media platforms, that's totally allowed as long as you allow all who ask to do so!
- Your commitee can also endorse a candidate.
- If a candidate is a part of the committee they must ask the permission from the other committee members before they post anything elections related on the society social media.
That's the basics but if you have any more questions you can check out the election rules or email the elections team.
