Democracy Committee

The Democracy Committee is our student leadership for elections, Student Council and the democratic governing of the SU. Working with staff, the Exec and the Trustees, they set rules for the running of elections and other democratic processes, review the structure of the SU and its governing documents, and work to make sure the SU stays fair and transparent, and to improve student engagement.

During elections they make decisions about implementation of the rules and the elections process, according to the Election Rules and the By-Laws..

The Democracy Committee positions are all elected, either by all students or by Student Council

Decisions of the Democracy Committee will be published on this website, and you can contact the Democracy Committee with any queries about elections on
