To make sure you're represented.

Not everyone running will necessarily share your views and opinions, or represent the diversity of our membership. If you want to make sure there's fair and equal representation, voting for candidates who you feel represent you is so important.

Give yourself the power to influence change

When you vote, you are influencing the outcome of the election. This could lead to new policies coming into effect, campaigns starting, or other changes around campus. You are the only one who can give yourself that power by voting!

Because it's important

OK, it's probably not *quite* as important as the recent US Presidential election, but it will help decide who sits on the cabinet of the Union for the next year. This can and will impact your experience at Brunel. Current officers have run campaigns from wellbeing to tackling Islamophobia, and have secured funding for lots of different projects like free sports club membership.

Have we convinced you?
