Society Elections


What are society elections?

Society elections are the process by which a group of students are fairly appointed as leaders of their society. The successful candidates will run the society the following academic year.


Why should I run?

As a democratic organisation, it’s crucial that all of our leaders are elected into position. This includes our society committee members. For your society to be affiliated with the Students' Union next year, it will need a committee that's responsible for running it. Since it’s compulsory that every committee has a Chair, Secretary and Treasurer, the Students’ Union will be running elections for these positions. We run the elections through our website as that way it's accessible to everyone and we can ensure only paid members of a society are able to run/vote. If your society doesn't fulfil the Chair, Secretary and Treasurer positions, it is at risk of disaffiliation. This could mean your society won't be active next year. Keep your society afloat by running for a committee role!


Can I run?

Those who would like to run for a committee position must be a paid member of the given society and a student in the next academic year. Eligible students will be able to nominate themselves. Please note that you cannot nominate someone else. All individuals hoping to be considered for a position must actively run themselves.


Can I vote?

Only paid members of a society can vote for that society's future committee. Eligible students will be given the chance to vote on the candidate(s).


Please contact societies@hertfordshire.su if your society still needs to fill the Chair, Secretary and Treasurer roles.

We can also run a mini election for your society if you wish to democratically elect additional positions (as opposed to simply appointing them yourselves).




No elections are currently running


If you are a member of a society and the nominations for that society are not visible please contact societies@hertfordshire.su
