FAQs


We understand that the elections can throw up a number of questions for both candidates and students. If your question isn’t answered below your first point of contact should be the Assistant Returning Officer, Dan Curran, who can be contacted via email or in person in the Students’ Union building.

To ensure the elections are free and fair, the Students’ Union Chief Executive, Tom Flynn, and a member of staff from NUS, Peter Robertson, oversee proceedings.

For clarity, the Deputy Returning Officer is Tom Flynn and the Returning Officer is Peter Robertson.


1. Don’t you have to be in your final year to stand as a Sabbatical Officer?
Any member, at any point during their studies, can stand to be a full-time sabbatical officer.

2. Don’t only sports people win elections?
No - lots of people who win elections don’t come from a sports team. An example of this is our current President, Education and Campaigns, Nayab Cheema, who was never part of a sports team at the College.

3. Aren’t elections just a popularity contest at the end of the day?
That depends what you mean by popularity. Obviously the most popular candidate wins, but that popularity could come from their policies or from an interesting and engaging campaign – it isn’t as simple as being an extrovert that knows 1000 students by name.

4. Do the other candidates stand a chance against an incumbent?
Every candidate stands a chance; just because the incumbent won one election doesn’t mean they will win another, especially if students don’t think they have done a good job.

5. I’ve seen someone covering up campaign posters, what can I do?
Firstly, posters are not the be all and end all of elections and if a candidates primary concern is posters then maybe they need to refocus their priorities. However, if you have any concerns you can contact the Assistant Returning Officer, Dan Curran, who will be able to advise you of the best way forward. You can also use the online complaints form if you would like to.

6. What do we mean by ‘allowing student to cast their votes in private’?
We understand that candidates would want to make the process of voting easy and simple. However, they have to make sure that each person has the chance to vote for whoever they want. If they are allowing someone to use their tablet or laptop then they need to make sure they don’t cast the vote for them. Giving them a chance to sit down is a great way of making sure they have enough space and privacy.

7. Can candidates use their own laptop or tablet to let people vote on?
Candidates can let people use their own device, however they have to make sure that people have a safe space to cast their vote and they don’t do it on a student’s behalf. We will have ballot stations set up across campus for people to cast their votes.

8. Where can people vote?
Voting is open from 09:00 Wednesday 9 March through to 16:00 Friday 11 March and all votes are cast online through the Students’ Union website.

9. What is the process if someone can’t access the voting system?
First of all they need to check that they are a member of the Students’ Union. If they aren’t a member, or they are but are still having problems, direct them to the Students’ Union Reception or the Assistant Returning Officer, Dan Curran, voice@su.rhul.ac.uk.

10. How do I make a complaint about the election process?
All complaints are considered by the Students’ Union Election team. To submit a complaint please complete the online form available here.

Alex Reilly


Why do you think you're the best person for the role?

I feel the work I have done this past year as Co-President Sports & Development has given me the understanding & experience to make Education a Students’ Union priority, as after all, we are here to get a degree first and foremost. Also, having been in a sabbatical role for a year, I feel I am in a position to really hit the ground running come July so that a stronger education support system can be in place before the start of the academic year. Finally, the contacts I already have within the college would allow me to lobby for students’ needs from an existing position of strength.

What would you like to achieve in this role?

I want students to decide & lead on priority education campaigns, both on campus & on a national scale - for example: freer Wednesdays & working on getting the most out of the TEF for our students. We need to rejuvenate the course rep system by creating a stronger education council & network for course reps to communicate with each other. Education is the primary reason we are all here, so it should be a Students’ Union priority. We have amazing student staff, I want to increase the discounts & benefits for all 250+ of them; with a real focus on skills & development.

Campus should be a welcoming place and it shouldn’t be possible for students to feel bored or isolated during the weekends.
