How to vote
Before you cast your all-important vote, listen to what the candidates have to say and read their manifestos to see what they promise to do if elected.
It's crucial that you vote for candidates based on their values and what they stand for. Check out all the candidates on the UWSU website. All students are entitled to vote for all of the positions.
When you've decided who to vote for, simply log in to the voting system using your usual University login details. There will be voting stations at each campus, with laptops available.
Note: You must cast your vote yourself - you may not vote on behalf of other students, and there are no arrangements for proxy votes. (If you do log in with another student’s ID details, you'll be breaking the University's regulations and could face disciplinary action.)
The president has overall responsibility for the work of the Sabbatical officer team at UWSU.
The president represents all students at the University, at the top level of student interaction. They are expected to work on a number of projects that benefit all students (normally those outlined in their election manifesto).
Vice Presidents (VP)
We have a system where elected officers represent students by the campus at which they study.
VPs are people from that community, looking after the students in that community.
The positions are:
- VP Harrow
- VP Marylebone
- VP Cavendish
- VP Regents and Little Titchfield Street
NUS Delegate (6 posts)
The elected NUS Delegates will attend the 2013 NUS National Conference on 8-10 April to represent the University of Westminster Students' Union.
Delegates debate and vote on what policy the NUS should work towards in the coming year, as well as voting in the elections for the National Executive Committee (elected students who set the strategic direction and priority campaigns of NUS).
Visit the UWSU website for more information on the candidates.
Watch the debates on Smoke TV's YouTube channel.
Why you should vote
The Students’ Union is here to represent you.
The Sabbatical officers are elected annually by students, to represent the student body at University level and champion student issues at a national level.
It is up to the Sabbatical team to provide direction for the Students’ Union and to campaign for changes at the University for the benefit of students.
