As a democratic organisation representing the student body at UEA, uea(su) run elections each academic year to make sure that you have a say on who represents you and to make sure that, once elected, your representatives are held accountable.
Elections at UEA(SU) are a vital process where students have the opportunity to nominate themselves for specific roles and seek support from their peers through votes. This democratic process allows students to actively participate in selecting the leaders of their Students' Union, ensuring that the SU is led by individuals who genuinely represent their interests. It is crucial for our work to be driven by the student body, enabling us to work in alignment with their needs and priorities. During our primary elections period in February/March, students will have the chance to elect individuals into full-time positions, each representing distinct student groups and advocating for various issues. The election serves as an open invitation for any eligible student to run for a role and provides an opportunity for fellow students to choose the representatives who will shape the direction and priorities of the SU for the upcoming academic year.
