The Leadership Race | Elections at Your Union

The Leadership Race is the annual election where students vote for who will represent them for the next academic year as Officers, Department Reps and Student Group Committees. But! The Leadership Race isn't the only election we run; read on to learn more about more opportunities to elect your peers to #LeadTheChange.

What are Staffs Union Elections like?

Your Union has a history of friendly, competitive and creative election campaigns run by enhtusiastic candidates, which we think is due to all elections running to four key principles: FairSafeLegal, and Positive

There are, of course, Election Rules which are published at the start of each academic year and - to make sure our elections are impartial - the NUS acts as our Returning Officer (the person with ultimate responsibility for ensuring elections are run properly).
