What are Student Union Elections and why are they important?

Student Union Elections are a legal requirement that allows the organisation to be member led by you, the students.

Winchester Student Union Officer Elections (Spring Elections) take place in Semester 2, to elect student representatives for the following academic year (July 1st-June 30th). If necessary, a By-Election is held early in the new academic year to fill any remaining vacant positions.
