If you voted, we’d like to thank you for taking part of a great year for student democracy and ensuring we represent your views.

An incredible 5829 people voted – which gives us a turnout of 25.1%. Although this is slightly down on last year (27.7%), despite having fewer candidates (51, from 69 last year), we actually had a higher number of votes on a per-candidate basis, which we’re still really proud of.

If you were a candidate, an extra big thanks. You worked so hard for your votes and were a major reason for our amazing high turnout.
