We’re an organisation run by you, for you.

- President of the Students’ Union
HOW NOMINATIONS WORK
ANYONE who’s currently a student at the University of Hull can nominate themselves for a position in the elections - you just have to submit a nomination online.
Before nominations open the website is updated with all the necessary information for you to nominate. If you have a question, we’ll provide you with any further information you need.
HOW VOTING WORKS
All registered students have the chance to vote in your elections.
Elections voting takes place online. The voting system is a transferable or preference voting system. This means that voters can rank the candidates in order of preference.
If no candidate gets at least 50% + 1 of the total votes, then the candidate with the lowest numbers is eliminated and their second preference votes are allocated to the other candidates. This process carries on until a candidate gets over 50% of the votes. So being someone’s second preference might still mean that a candidate wins their election.
