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.

Primary Elections 2017/18

Hello lovely people, so the time has come when we are coming to the last few months of being on the committee. The committee needs a President, Treasurer and Secretary to continue from April onwards as the majority of the committee are in their final year and these three roles will be vacant. This means that the society won't be running after April without some new people! Please complete a manifesto and post below for the desired position, you may submit a manifesto for more than one position. The more committee members the better to divide up tasks and accomplish more as a society! Deadlines for applications close 02/03/17 and voting will be open 03/03/17 - 31/03/17.
