Due to an computer error within the Universities IT systems we’re going to be extending the nomination period for our Academic elections. The issue mentioned has resulted in hundreds of student accounts being unable to access our website which we estimate could have affected over a third of the student body.
For our elections to be truly democratic we must ensure all students have an equal chance to stand for a position and have the ability to vote for their representatives. The issue should now be fully resolved thanks to the swift response from IT services however we have extended the election period considerably to allow for any other issues that may not have been discovered yet.
The new dates are as follows:
Nomination deadline: Wednesday 18th October, 5pm.
Voting stage: Monday 23rd October, 10am to Friday 27th October, 2pm.
Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
