HOW CAN I VOTE?
You must be a current UCA student to vote. Bring your UCA ID card to the polling station and show it to a member of staff. We’ll check that you are enrolled on a course at UCA and then give you your voting papers. Manifestos for all candidates will be available at the polling station, or you can read them online.
For every position, there is an option to ‘Re-Open Nominations’ (RON for short). RON is a vote against all subsequent candidates in an election. If re-open nominations is elected to any position then at the end of the count that position is declared vacant and nominations must later be re-opened for that position.
In a multi-member constituency (such as Student Experience Officers) there are two approaches. In the first, when a RON candidate is elected, all other candidates below RON are declared not to be elected and the counting process stops, the election is then re-run for that and all other unfilled positions.
If you have any questions about how the Re-Open Nominations works, email Deputy Returning Officer Scott Cannie – email@example.com
