How to vote

As soon as voting opens, a link will be sent to all students via their University email accounts.

The email will contain a secure link to the voting page of the Brookes Union website. The email will be from ‘Brookes Union,’ and will have ‘Election Link’ in the subject line.

Once you arrive at the voting section of the Brookes Union you won’t need to register or submit more data. (Although we do recommend you sign up to our site, as you’ll then be able to access the full benefits!)

However, if you bypass the registration process it will take you straight to the voting platform.

If you are unsure who to vote for, don't forget to check out the candidates' manifestos.

Voting closes 5pm on Thursday 5th March. 


Single Transferable Vote:

STV is a voting system that allows you to rank the candidates in order of preference (e.g. Sam Smith - 1, John Doe - 2).

If you only want to vote for one candidate you can do so. You just need to leave the other candidates blank.
