Autumn referenda announced

Students will get the chance to change things at the Students' Union in two referenda later this month.

The referenda will ask students “Should the Students’ Union publicly support the people's vote on the final deal of the United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union?” and “Should the Students' Union implement a policy on Sexual Violence?

These policies are being put to students following a vote in Union Council on 8th November. If passed, they would mandate the Students’ Union and the elected officer team to take specific action.

Voting for the referenda will take place from 27th - 30th November.

Want to campaign for or against these referenda?

If you wish to campaign for or against either of these proposals, please email returning@sussexstudent.com before midday on Friday 16th November. This allows you to write an argument supporting your viewpoint which will be published as part of the referenda and the option to use Union-funded publicity materials to try to persuade students to vote to support your viewpoint. The deadline for the arguments is Tuesday 20th November.
