BCUSU Leadership Elections
Each year, we hold an election for all BCU students to decide who will be the next Leadership Officers to lead BCUSU. This year, we broke a new record as 6019 BCU students cast 26629 preferential votes!
You have now told us who you want to run your Students' Union for the 2022-23 academic year.
By using your voice and telling us who you want to be elected into the officer roles, you will make a difference to how your Students’ Union and University is run. You have voted for candidates in each position who you believe will represent BCUSU and your views, and who will ensure you get the most out of your experience as a BCU student.
Thank you for voting, ensuring BCUSU is led by students, for students.
To be elected, a candidate needs to reach a minimum amount of votes, known as the quota. We work out the quota based on the total number of votes cast for each position.
Every voter has one transferable vote for each position. Once the counting has finished, the candidate who has more first-choice votes than the quota is elected. If no one reaches the quota in the first round, then the least popular candidate is eliminated. People who voted for them have their vote transfered to their second favourite candidate. This process continues until a clear winner is identified.
