2016 Winter Elections for Liberation Officers and NUS Delegates

What are the Winter Elections?

The Winter Elections are for student Liberation Officers and NUS Delegates Liberation officers will have the power to influence and improve student union and University policy, by making sure that the minority group that they represent is treated equally and with respect. NUS delegates will be able to debate and votes on influential and controversial policy at the NUS annual conference 2016 in Brighton and will be joined by delegates from across the country. Both these positions give you the chance to lead the direction of UWSU and NUS.

How do I vote?

Voting commences on December 5th, and runs through until December 8th.

The voting is entirely online. Every student will be emailed with an online email ballet, so please remember to check your emails. You will need to login with your Student ID.

NUS Delegates

The NUS National Conference is a three-day event which happens once a year in April. At this yearly conference, students get to have their say on NUS policies and campaigns. These elections are crucial for all students at Westminster and the UWSU commits a significant amount of membership fees to be part of the NUS. For this reason, we encourage all students to examine closely the work of the NUS to ensure it is working hard to improve the welfare of students locally and nationally. NUS delegates have three main roles at the conference: to vote in national elections; to vote on policy and to vote on reports.  

There are four positions available   

Liberation Officers

Liberation officers play a crucial role in ensuring that the voices of all students regardless of race gender disability or student status are heard. We will have four liberation officer positions: BAME Officer
Women’s Officer
LGBTI Officer
Disabilities Officer
International Students’ Officer
