Thank you to everyone who engaged in this year’s elections process - a massive 12,834 votes were cast, electing 522 successful candidates into committee positions.

Congratulations to everyone who has successfully being elected for a committee position - running in elections of any kind can be very daunting so you should all be very proud that you made the brave decision to stand. Now that the scary part is over with we hope that you can start getting excited for the year ahead and for the challenges and experiences that lay ahead of you. You will be contacted via email soon with information about what happens next.

For those of you who weren’t successful, please don’t be too disheartened, there are still lots of ways that you can get involved. Later this term we will be holding by-elections for any positions that are yet to be filled so you still have a chance to gain a spot on committee before the end of the academic year. Dates for this will be released to groups next week so please keep an eye out for updates.
