Each year the Students’ Union holds elections to elect the Student Leaders and Volunteer Officers for the next academic year.
Due to the change of term times at the University of Lincoln, this year, the elections are taking place later than in previous years. The dates of the elections for 2021, to elect the Student Leaders and Volunteer Officers for the academic year 2021/22 are:

You can nominate yourself and vote during these dates, online at lincolnsu.com/elections. Votes will be cast using the Single Transferable Vote Method.
Any member of the University of Lincoln Students’ Union is able to nominate themselves and vote, in line with bye-law 7 of the Students’ Union bye-laws.
A full list of posts, as approved by the Election Sub Committee, to be filled is here.
All Student Leader candidates must attend the question time event in line with bye-law 7.11.1. This year, question time is to be held as a round table event, for each group of candidates, online using Streamyard.

This year, the elections will be running a bit differently due to COVID-19. To ensure consistency for all candidates the Election Sub Committee has ruled that these elections will take place with no Physical campaigning allowed by any candidate . All election campaigning will therefore only be permitted to take place online, in line with the rules and regulations which can be found here.
Keep an eye out for further information about the roles and remits of the Student Leaders and Officers and this year’s elections.
All Students’ Union Elections are run in line with bye-law 7.
