The Students’ Union 2016 elections are underway with results to be announced on Friday 4 March. The officers are elected to represent the viewpoint of students at all levels of our decision-making structure and play a significant role in ensuring we can engage effectively with our students. Support for the elections is therefore a very important part of the relationship between the student community and the University.
The final candidate list will be published this week and candidates will start campaigning on Monday 29 February.
There has been some concern in the past that candidate publicity posters put up during elections can look unsightly and obstruct notices. Colleagues in Estates are working closely with the SU and staff in key parts of campus to manage the display of posters during this period. Additional election posters are allowed on campus on the agreement that nothing is placed near directional signage, that only specific materials are used to fix the posters, and that the SU applies financial penalties for candidates who have not removed all posters after the elections have closed.
Where there are high-profile events on campus where the display of election posters may not be appropriate, please liaise with Stephen Hughes in the Estates team at S dot A dot Hughes at warwick dot ac dot uk. This process worked well last year.
