After three incredible days of campaigning and a record-breaking 30.6% turnout, it's time to find out who you've elected to lead the Students' Union in 2020/21.
With four full-time Sabbatical Officers, two NUS Delegates, and five School Reps being elected, you turned out in your droves to secure a turnout of 30.6%, smashing last year's 28.4% as we broke the 30% barrier for the first time in our history.
With Jack O'Neill at the end of his maximum two-year term as a Sabbatical Officer, we were guaranteed a new President and Kate Roberts was successfully elected to lead the Union, making the move from her current role as Vice President Education.
Alissa Chohan was elected as your new Vice President Education, Henn Warwick becomes Vice President Wellbeing & Diversity, and Lucy Brown takes on the brand new Vice President Societies & Sport position. We would like to congratulate all of our candidates on their phenomenal campaigns which have seen them elected into their respective roles.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our candidates who stood this year – without you, there simply would be no election. A big thumbs up also to all of the campaign teams who have worked tirelessly for each of the candidates, and kept us entertained, from quirky campaign videos to extravagant campaigning on campus.
The Students’ Union looks forward to welcoming the newly elected officers to the team in July, ready for a year of action and change.

We are also delighted to announce the winners of our student group competition, with Rock & Metal Society (86.7% turnout) securing the win in the over 50 members category, while Badminton (100%) found the last two members they needed to claim victory in the under 50 members category. Both groups will be receiving £50 into their restricted accounts. Shout out to Labour who missed out on the prize despite finishing as the top society (90.6%).
