How does the Union make sure our voting process is fair, and which system do we use? We use the Single Transferable Voting (STV) system, and we will explains how this works below.

In our elections, you don’t vote for one person alone, you can rank the candidates in order of your preference. So, the candidate your most preferred candidate is placed number 1, your second preferred candidate is placed number 2, and so on.
This means your vote isn’t lost once your number 1 candidate is voted out, we can still look to your second and third choices to inform the next rounds of voting.

We’ve explained how it works further in our animation…

Voting in our Spring Elections is open Wednesday 06 March at 09:00 – Friday 08 March at 16:00.
