Due to a website outage during the voting period yesterday, the Deputy Returning Officer Team made the decision to extend the voting period in order to mitigate the impact this had on students not being able to vote.
Voting will continue until 10:00 Monday 8 March with the announcement being put back until 18:00 Monday 8 March.

The Leadership Race at The Students’ Union at UWE operates in a fair and democratic manner, where all candidates are governed by a clear set of policies, procedures, protocols, and election rules.
Unfortunately, this year the election rules have been breached by a candidate, resulting in The Students’ Union at UWE taking the difficult decision to disqualify the candidate from this year’s Leadership Race.
An appeal was submitted by the candidate in question, however, the appeal was not upheld by our independent external Returning Officer.
Regrettably, this means that any votes cast for these candidates will now not be eligible for consideration. As The Students’ Union uses the single transferable voting system, we would like to reassure any affected students that their next preferences will be taken into account.
