Your Students’ Union holds elections in order to allow you to choose your student representatives for the next academic year.  There are three part-time positions who would work 21 hours a week, taking a break from their studies or immediately after graduation. They are your voice and act as your representatives in the union, institution and wider community, fighting for you on institutional, local and national level.

Candidates produce manifestos that contain the ideas and principles of their campaigns. Ask yourself if they display key creative and communicative skills that you would like to see in someone who is representing you and your needs.

If you don’t feel any of the candidates standing in a position have the qualities you feel are valuable, or you do not agree with their manifesto, you can vote RON.  RON stands for “re-open nominations”.  This means, should RON be more popular than any of the other candidates, no-one would be elected to this role and the nominations for the role would re-open, giving the opportunity to find the right person to lead your union.

You can also nominate yourself for election! It's a fun experience and a great opportunity to develop your leadership and communication skills. The main SU elections take place during the Spring term.

Should you require further information, please call into the SU Office on the ground floor between 10 am - 5 pm or email suelections@rave.ac.uk
