Students vote online for the person they would like to be elected by ranking the candidates in order of preference.
We use the Single Transferable Vote (STV) system to calculate the winner.

Student Reps seek out the views of their fellow students and represent these to their department, their school and the University.
For the University and the Students' Union, Reps are an important way of listening to the student voice and responding to student concerns about teaching and learning, so it's important that you vote to ensure your Rep is representative!
If you have any questions please contact Ellie, the Student Rep Assistant at the Students' Union at firstname.lastname@example.org.
