Extra Information: Currently every student must register on the students union website in order to use its facilities; i.e. sign up for societies and sports, vote in elections etc. However, the current registration window is very poorly put together, and the mobile version rarely works at all as some of the tick boxes are impossible to click. This immediately puts students off getting involved in SU activities, particularly voting in elections; something that the SU struggles with every year and yet this very obvious and relatively simple problem hasn't been fixed. The registration process should be streamlined, asking only for absolutely necessary information, and it should be rigorously tested to ensure that it works on all devices.
