Welcome to the Candidate Hub - your one-stop shop for anything you'll need to stand in the SU Officer Elections this year.
Below you'll find the Candidate Handbook, info on Candidate Workshops, and the answers to any Candidate questions that have been asked of the Deputy Returning Officer. Any questions, just email su.democracy@uos.ac.uk - and good luck!




Candidate Handbook and Additional Rulings


We've put together a Candidate Handbook that has all the key info you need to be a candidate in the elections - make sure to download this below and read it thoroughly if you intend to run as a candidate in these elections.

The handbook contains info on the rules and regs of the elections that you will need to be aware of and follow as a candidate. In addition, there will be 'rulings' that the Deputy Returning Officer needs to make when asked questions or something unexpected comes up during the elections. You can find our info on these additional rulings on our Additional Rulings page, linked to below - make sure to keep checking this page regularly (any new rulings will also be emailed to candidates).

If you're not sure about whether something is within the rules or not, or need something further clarified, please email su.democracy@uos.ac.uk. 







This final session in the UOS SU Officer Elections training session is a mandatory session for all candidates, where you'll receive key info on dates for the election, the rules and regs that you'll have to follow as a candidate and a chance to ask any questions you might have.
You will be emailed a link if standing as a candidate
