ELECTIONS 18 | A RECORD BREAKING TURNOUT!

ELECTIONS 18 | A RECORD BREAKING TURNOUT!

WHAT AN ELECTIONS!

In case you missed it, which you would have had to have been living under a rock in order to, last week you as a student body decided who your next set of presidents, chairs of schools & NUS delegates are going to be!

It was an incredible week, with some really tight results (which you can check out here), and something we are super excited to announce…

WE HAD OUR BIGGEST EVER TURNOUT!

We headed into the week with a really ambitious target of seeing 35% of our students vote, and you certainly turned up! We ended on 35.8%, and we saw the votes fly in from every single avenue they possibly could.
