Well done to all our candidates who have put their time and energy into campaigning for your votes. This year, we achieved a fantastic voter turnout, 1960 of you made your voice heard and together you cast 11,885 votes.
Thank you to everyone for taking part, be it as a candidate, part of a campaign team, one of our fantastic ballot staff or a keen voter.
We operate a Single Transferable voting system. This system, also known as STV requires voters to rank the candidates in order of preference. Under STV, votes are initially allocated to the voters most preferred candidate and, as the count proceeds and candidates are either elected or eliminated, votes are transferred to other candidates according to the voters stated preferences.
We exist to ensure you have the best
possible experience at USW.
We make sure the student body – a collective voice of over 20,000 students - is heard at the highest level.
