Below are the general rules for SU elections.
If you are running for a full time officer, chair of network, faculty rep or student trustee you must also follow the Code of Conduct and sign and return it - you will be emailed a copy. Course reps and JCRs - you do not need to sign and return the Code of Conduct but should follow the main rules below.
If you have any questions or would like a clarification, please ask the Bristol SU Elections team.
The main rules are listed above and click here for the full code of conduct. Additional rules may be in effect for particular elections (if candidates are given a budget, for example) or may be added by the Returning Officer during an election.
If you believe that a rule has been broken, please contact the Bristol SU Elections team, who will provide a specific complaints form. All election-related complaints must be submitted before the close of voting. The Returning Officer will assign sanctions to candidates as needed.
Appeals to decisions made by the Returning Officer will be heard by a panel at the discretion of the Democratic Standards Committee and the Chair of the Bristol SU Board of Trustees.
