We’ve had such an exciting election this year with a record breaking turnout and some incredible candidates running to represent you. We received over 3100 votes received!
Here’s a quick look at the physical ballots being counted on Thursday night.
The results were announced last night outside LCC’s Darkroom Bar in front of a very tense audience.
After many rounds of voting for each position (see below) we are delighted to introduce your Sabbatical Team. The current Sabbatical Officers running for reelection, Shelly, Mostafa and Hannah all won their respective elections whilst Honor Severs is the new Activities and Volunteering Officer. We were delighted to see third year sculptor, Honor be elected as our very first Sabbatical Officer from Wimbledon!

We also had an all new team of Vice-Presidents elected who will be key in leading social events and continuing building communities across the different sites, working alongside the SUARTS College Coordinators.

In 2009 just 450 people voted in the Students’ Union elections and this week over 3000 people voted which is nothing short of incredible. We’re very excited for your new team to get started in June of this year.
The full results are as follows.
