#YUSUElections

You Can Make Change Happen

The Officer Elections are your chance to get your voice heard, and make real changes to students’ lives here in York.

This website will help you to find information on when the elections are, why you should run, where to go if you have any questions - whether you've never thought about running before or whether you decided the second you got to York - and how you can run an effective and meaningful campaign.

Whatever you do, all current students at the University of York can stand.
