With the upcoming Students’ Union elections right around the corner, you may find yourself wondering where and how you are able to cast your vote. Luckily, the voting process could not be easier, with options to suit everybody, whether on or off campus.
The voting for the full-time SU officers will take place on Thursday 2nd March 2023, and you will have the option of voting online between 10am and 8pm on this day via Yourspace. You can access this by logging in to your Yourspace portal, and links and reminders will be made available throughout this day across SU social media platforms and your student email.
Alternatively, there will also be in-person voting stations across campus at the following locations and times on Thursday 2nd March:
- Síbín (10am-8pm)
- Áras na Mac Léinn (11am-7pm)
- Alice Perry Engineering Building (12-4pm)
Student ID is required for in-person voting.
Voting will be done via secret ballots and will use the system of Proportional Representation, which means you will provide a list of the candidates you are voting for, in order of preference, and the candidate with the most votes will win.
There will also be the option to vote RON (reopen nominations) if you are not happy with any of the candidates. If RON receives the most votes, nominations will be reopened to new candidates and another election will take place.
The counting of votes will begin on Friday 3rd March at 9am in Síbín.
