ENSA is asking all Edinburgh Napier University students to cast their votes in the Big Student Elections next week. You will be voting for which students you want to act as your representatives in the next academic year (2019/20).
The winning candidates will work for your Students’ Association for 1 year (starting in the summer) and will make decisions and policies that can have an impact on the student experience at Edinburgh Napier University. They’ll be acting as the student voice to the University, so if you want to make sure the right people are speaking on your behalf, use your vote and have your say!
HOW TO VOTE
Voting only takes a few minutes and is done online, either at a computer or on a mobile device. All matriculated Edinburgh Napier students on a UK-based programme are entitled to vote.
ENSA uses the ATV voting system for its elections - find out how it works here.
Polls will be open:
- Monday 4 to Thursday 7 March: 8am-6pm
- Friday 8 March: 8am-3pm
Make sure you cast your vote when polls open!
The students who have put themselves forward for a role are listed below - click on them to read their manifesto so you can make a decision on who you think will do the best job on your behalf.
If you think the candidates are unsuitable you will be able to vote for "Re-Open Nominations". This is used to indicate that you would prefer the nominations process for the post to be re-opened to allow new candidates to put themselves forward.
Running for President:
Two candidates are running against each other for President. Which one do you want to represent you next year?
Running for Vice President Sports & Societies:
Only one candidate is running for VP Sports & Societies, however she will still need your votes to get elected and beat the "Re-Open Nominations" option on the ballot.
Running for Vice President Reps & Volunteers:
Three candidates are running against each other for VP Reps and Volunteers. Which one will get your vote?
Running for Craiglockhart Campus Officer (2 posts):

Running for Equality and Diversity Officer:
Only one candidate is standing for this post, however she'll still need your backing to beat the Re-Open nominations option on the ballot.
