If you’ve been able to come onto the main Edgbaston campus recently, you will have noticed cardboard and posters and matresses and banners and balloons and people dressed in odd costumes. This can only mean one thing: elections! The student media groups have also been covering the elections online: BurnFM have interviews with each candidate, GTV also have interviews and Redbrick have been writing articles along the way, as well as featuring manifestos and statements from each candidate.
Voting is open right now on www.my.bham.ac.uk (log in as usual, click the blue elections banner and off you go!) and closes at 4pm on Friday 9th March. Results will be streamed live by GTV on the evening of Saturday 10th March, as well as being live-blogged by Redbrick. Interviews will be available throughout the night from BurnFM.
Every student has a vote in these elections and every vote really does count. Last year we had a huge voter turnout and this year we’re aiming to have even more engaged students logging onto my.bham to get their voice heard. Remember, the Guild is not just a building: it is also a service for representation and welfare.
