Elections

We use democratic elections to choose the people that will speak and act on your behalf. That means they're your opportunity to choose who represents you.

Every student at Leeds University can vote in the annual Leadership Race, while other elections may have certain requirements – you must be a current resident of a Halls of Residence to vote in its Halls Rep elections, for example.

Equipment Secretary 2016-17

Hey all, As you know, due to the demand for our practice spaces and our recent overhaul of our equipment, we've been thinking about opening up a position for Equipment Secretary for a while now. The Equipment Secretary would be able to provide an extra pair of hands when looking after the equipment, as well as being able to make sure that the equipment is all safely stored away in the storage room after the bands have used it over the weekend. They would also be able to convene with us regarding what equipment to buy. In addition to all of this, the Equipment Secretary will become an official part of the committee, which means guestlisted entry to Fruity (as you can tell, we have deals with the edgiest of clubs) and exclusive nights with us as well as becoming an integral part of the BandSoc crew. If you'd like to apply for the position, please send us a couple of sentences about why you feel like you'd be able to fit the role. The deadline for this will be Tuesday the 22nd of November. Following this, anyone who's a member of BandSoc will be able to vote electronically through the Union website until the 6th of December. We'll announce who our new Equipment Secretary is in December - probably at an end of term social!

Nominations are now closed.

The polls are open and will close at 17:00 on Tuesday 6 December 2016 (in 14 hours)
