Club and Society Elections

Bulk Elections

The Activities team runs all elections for Club and Societies. Throughout the year we run 2 types of elections in accordance to the Student Unions constitution. The first one is a bulk election that all student groups are involved with. These elections happen towards the end of the academic year and replaces all committee positions and elects and whole committee for the upcoming academic year.

 

The other type of election that the Activities team runs are By-Elections, if any student group wants a new position adding to their committee, a committee member drops out if their position or a new society is set up a By-Election is ran. Student groups must inform the Activities team that they wish to run a By-Election, however, we have made the process much easier for our students.

Setting up a By-Election

  • Inform the Activities team which society and position you would like setting up
  • Inform Activities of the reason for the By-Election
  • Plan between the rest of the committee when you would be the best time for the election
  • Make sure that the nomination period dose not end during the weekend or late Friday as the Activities team will not be able to confirm the nominees
  • Complete the By-Election form and return it back to su.activities@keel.ac.uk
