How does voting work?

The voting system at Beds SU is bespoke to us and therefore looks a little different to what you might see in a local/national election in the UK.

How to vote

All registered students at the University of Bedfordshire, from all UK campuses, are eligible to vote.

We use the Alternative Vote (AV) system. This means that voters can rank candidates in order of preference. Instead of putting a cross in a box next to your favourite candidate, voters can put a 1 next to their 1st choice, a 2 next to their 2nd choice, and so on. Voters can rank as many or as few candidates as they choose.
