Are you ready for the Elections? Here are some tips to make sure you make an informed decision.
Make sure you've shared your data with the Union.
If you log in to vote and it says 'Account not matched', this may mean that you haven't shared your data with us. This can be done by logging into your Pegasus account, going into the 'Personal' tab, then into 'Data'. You will find an option to share your data with the Students' Union. This may take up to 3 days to come through, so it's worth checking it out now!
Read the candidates' manifestos.
You can find all the candidates manifestos HERE - they will also be displayed in the foyer of the Students' Union.
Check out how you can vote for.
Some positions can only be voted on by people in certain groups. For example, on students in the Business Faculty can vote for the Faculty Rep Business position. Similarly, only women can vote for the Womens' Rep. In order to vote in some of these positions, you need to self-identify into the groups - guidance on how to do this can be found HERE
Come along to Meet the Candidates!
We will be hosting a Meet the Candidates session on Monday 2nd March, 18:00, in Recharge (Level 4, Strath Union). This is a great opportunity to find out what the candidates are standing for and to ask them any questions you might have. Let us know you're coming at the Facebook event HERE.
Remember, you can vote for more than one person!
We use a single transferable vote system, so you can vote for as many candidates as you like.
