Vote Fest 2017


All Lancaster University students can vote and have a say on who represents you and leads your Students' Union! It's really quick and easy - just log in using your University login and password, head to and cast your vote.

Here at LUSU, we use the single transferable voting method. This means that you don't just vote for your favourite candidate, but you can let us know who is your second favourite, third favourite, and so on. Just put a '1' next to your favourite and rank them from there. Find out more about voting with our helpful video here.

Ballots open now


It's time to choose the next leaders of your students' union!

Some colleges also have JCR elections taking place this week - you'll have chance to vote in these elections at the same time that you vote for the Full-Time Officer posts.
