Confusion over Student Union Elections website ‘testing phase’

1st March 2016

Students believe to have successfully cast votes in Nottingham’s Student Leader Elections 2016, although voting does officially open until the 4th March.

This morning URN News was alerted to the fact that the Student Leader Elections voting poll was ‘open’. Despite voting being advertised as beginning of the 4th of March.


Two second year students believed they had successfully cast their votes, both yesterday and early this morning.



One of the students gave URN this statement :



Yet after speaking to your Students Union President Angharad Smith, she reassured us that all of the votes cast will be reset in the next few days, and will not count towards the final tally and electoral results:



Voting begins on the 4th March 2016 at 9am and will close on the 11th March at 3pm.
