How to get involved?

To Vote in Central Elections - why?

In just a few weeks, Central students will have the chance to elect their new Central SU Officer Team. Full time President and part-time VPs and Officers are the key representatives for the student body and, working with other Student Leaders, they shape and inform the Union's democratic structure and its priorities. Candidates will outline their key aims and ideas in their manifestos over the campaigning period. By voting in the elections, each of you get to contribute to deciding what Central SU priorities are for the next 12 months.


Here are three key reasons why your vote will matter in the elections...

1. Central SU Officers are to promote the interests and welfare of all students at Central during their course of study and representing, supporting and advising Students;  To provide social, cultural, sporting and recreational activities and forums for discussions and debate for the personal development of the union; Central SU officers will be there to protect the rights the students and campaign for and on behalf of the best interests for you.


Whether it’s getting better student feedback, defending central students current matters and issues, getting significantly more support for disability and dyslexia, welfare or health services, or campaigning  for change, the Officers, guided by you, can make huge changes to the school life, here at Central.  By voting, YOU get to influence what that change will be.

2. SU Officers run the SU day-to-day

Central Officers have responsibility for all the everyday activities of the SU. If you want to contribute to making our services, our businesses, our support, and our environment even better, the Officers, with your support, will be able to make that change happen.

3. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Voting is all done online (a link to vote will be sent to your student inbox)  at the click of a button, and it’s really easy to see people’s Manifestos and ideas as you vote. As we use the Transferable Vote System, which essentially asks the voter to rank the candidates in the order of preference, your vote won’t be wasted and will be transferred to your next-preferred choice.
