Standing

Voting

Opens on this page from 10am Monday 15th March to 10am Monday 19th April 2021 Voting will begin at 10am on Monday 26th April to 3pm Friday 30th April

 

In order to stand and vote every person will need to hold membership to their club or society, and will also need to be a current student at Aberystwyth University. Deadline to obtain membership: 10am Monday 19th April

 

How standing works:

 

  • Standing will go live on this page from 10am Monday 15th March to 10am Monday 19th April 2021
  • The form will ask you for:
    • Your details
    • Which club/society you're standing for
    • The role which you wish to stand for
    • Then some publicity (often called a manifesto) of why individuals should vote for you in that role
  • You are able to stand for as many roles across as many student groups as you wish
    • If you stand for multiple roles in a group we will contact you for your preferred role in case you win multiple roles
    • Please note a single individual is not able to hold multiple core committee roles within a single student group

 

How voting works:

 

  • We will be using a software called MiVoice. This will use the roles available provided by clubs/socs and the details submitted by individuals who are standing [Standing: 10am Monday 15th March – Monday 19th April].
  • On the day voting opens [10am Monday 26th April] eligible members will be emailed a unique voting link generated by MiVoice; this will allow you to cast your vote for the committee candidates. You will be able to rank the individuals in order of preference as well as RON (Re Open Nominations) [Voting deadline: 3pm Friday 30th April]
  • It is important to obtain membership before standing; otherwise you are not eligible to stand. Likewise, you will also need to obtain membership a week before voting commences, as only members will receive a voting link.
    • Membership deadline: Monday 19th April 10am
