We love a bit of democracy here at Bristol SU! Term started with nominations for our first elections of the year opening, and voting took place last week.
You came out in your thousands to vote in the first term elections, and although we just missed last year's record, we hope you'll help us smash it out of the park when we ask you to vote again in March. 3349 students voted in the election (in comparison to 3564 last year), with a special shout out to taught postgraduate students who had the largest student turnout. 1789 out of 8368 first year undergraduates voted.
We’re so happy you used democracy to get your voice heard and elect some fantastic candidates. There was a wide range of positions up for grabs from JCR’s, course reps, faculty reps, Chairs of Networks, NUS delegates and the Democratic Standards Committee.
We'd also like to give a shout out to the students that ran for a role. Whether you won or lot, we want to give everyone a round of applause for taking the time to write a manifesto, speak to fellow course mates, housemates and other students.
We encourage you to carry on running for position, we may be bias, but we think working with the Union is great and can positively impact students’ lives.
Now, for the bit you’ve been waiting for…*drum roll please*
