Voting Begins in the 2018 Leadership Race

Voting Begins in the 2018 Leadership Race

Leadership Race , Democracy

Your candidates have spent the last week getting their manifestos out there and debating with each other over the future of your union, now it’s up to you to decide who leads LUU as 38 candidates over seven student executive roles vie for your vote over the next four days.

Remember, the more votes the Leadership Race gets, the more representative your Student Exec are, and to sweeten the deal we’re giving away more and more prizes the more votes we get:


1,000 votes – 6 x Gear Hoodies

2,000 votes - 6 x £50 LUU vouchers

4,000 votes – 6 x three month’s Free Fruity pass

6,000 votes – 6 pairs of Leeds Ball tickets

8,000 votes – 6 x £100 cash

10,000 – 6 x £250 cash


To vote, go to the Leadership Race website and pick the candidates you want to lead LUU (we use a single transferable vote system, so you can rank candidates in order of preference).

Voting closes at 6pm on Thursday 1 March, with the new student executive announced on results night the following day.


Each voter is entitled to one prize draw entry. Winners will be announced on Friday 2 March. The three-month Fruity pass is valid until 31 May 2018.
