UCLan Students’ Union has released the dates of elections this year.
In a statement on their website, Students’ Union President Sana Iqbal said:
“We are so proud of the diverse range of students that ran for elections this year. It has been a phenomenal turnout, with 3,803 votes cast, and a record number of 20 candidates running for the five Sabbatical positions. This only strengthens the student voice at UCLan and helps us create a better Students’ Union for everyone!”
The NUS elections will be held in November for delegates to the National Union of Students National, National Women’s, and National LGBT+ Conferences. Delegates’ roles are to represent students from the University of Central Lancashire in making policy for the NUS’ campaigns, and voting in NUS elections for either the NUS as an entire organisation or for individual campaigns and sections.
“It has been a phenomenal turnout with 3803 votes and a record number of 20 candidates running for the five Sabbatical positions.”
