The Election Process & How to Stand


Subject Reps are elected positions. This means you must be elected via popular vote of your cohort.

Standing is quick and easy. Make sure you are logged in to the SU website. Then put your name forward with a short manifesto and photo. Your manifesto is a short statement explaining why you would make a great Rep.

Your classmates will need to visit in order to cast their vote. After the election has concluded the votes will be counted and all candidates will be informed of the results.

For most courses that commence in September the elections period will occur in October. If your course begins in January your elections period will be in February. If your course begins in March your elections period will be in April. If your course starts outside these times we’ll typically try and run the election within three to four weeks of teaching beginning.
