Leeds University Union is a representative organisation that’s led by its members. Every student here at Leeds has plenty of ways to have a direct say in how the Union is run, and elections are a really big part of that.
There are four main election periods that run across each academic year, so there’s always an opportunity to get involved in democracy at the Union. This page provides an overview of the different opportunities across the year, to help you decide which are the most appropriate for you.
Whether you’re looking to steer a society or influence national policy, we’re confident there’s an election for you. Our elections are open to anyone to vote or stand, and you don’t need to be a campaigning expert to get involved – just passion, ideas and a drive to get stuck in.
The Political Engagement Team is here to support you every step of the way, providing training and tips, resources and mentoring. You can always get in touch with them on LUU.PET@leeds.ac.uk.
