The voting period for the University of Brighton Leadership elections is well underway. It began on Monday the 11th this week and ends this Friday at 3pm. Already the SU have receieved over a thousand votes. If you have not had a chance to vote for your favourite part-time and full-time candidates, do it now!
It’s very easy to vote, all you need to do is go to the UoB’s Student Union website at www.brightonsu.com and scroll down to the bottom of their home page. There you will find a link to the online voting page. Once you’ve followed the link you will need to scroll up to the top of the page and log in with your UoB username and password (the same username and password you use to log into the university computers).
Pressing the “log-in” button will direct you to a new page with a black button that says: “STUDENT LOG IN – PLEASE CLICK HERE>”. Click this button and enter your username and password.
When you have been re-directed to the new page, scroll down and click the “VOTE NOW” button, this will then take you to a new page with the option to vote for all the positions available (by pressing VOTE NOW) or to vote for specific positions (which you will find listed below the VOTE NOW button).
Finally, you will need to number the candidates in order of preference by typing 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 next to the appropriate options. If you don’t want any of the candidates to be voted in, then select RON (Re-Open Nominations). As the name suggests, NFP (No Further Preferences) is the option you number if you are indecisive about a candidate (this will probably be your final choice).
As soon as you press vote, your choice will be registered and you will have made a direct contribution towards who will be running your student’s union in the next academic year.
Once you’ve voted, encourage others to vote beause the more votes are made, the more effective the selection process will be at finding the best candidate.
Good luck to all of you! We can’t wait for the results party this Friday!
