It’s that time of year again – YUSU Elections

YUSU Elections - a nice nod to Andy Warhol there!

YUSU Elections – a nice nod to Andy Warhol there!

So as you guess if you’ve been walking around campus, it’s that time of year again – the YUSU Elections. The campus  is currently covered in various cardboard signs, attempting to get students to vote for the various candidates. I’m not gonna lie, I have found the signs a little boring – they all look the same, and it doesn’t look like much time was spent on them. Quantity over quality I guess. Nevertheless, it is not my role here to voice my likes and dislikes of the campaigns, or who I think you should vote for, but to encourage you all to vote anyway!

Head to to vote for the candidates that you think will bring the best to the university. It really makes a huge difference having a great team supporting the needs of students, so every vote is vital. If you’re having a tough time deciding who to vote for check out the YUSU website (here) which has lots of information, or check out the various student-run papers such as Nouse and York Vision, which have information about the individual candidates. Voting literally takes a second to do – so don’t waste your vote, as you only have till this Friday!

So what are you waiting for? I’ve voted, have you?
