Congratulations if you've nominated yourself for a committee position!
This page gives you an overview of election rules and the support/resources available to you as a candidate running for a position in our Spring Elections. We want to engage the full CSP membership during this round of elections during the voting period and need your help!
Candidates' Pack & Election Rules
Imperial College Union's elections are governed by rules that ensure fairness and accessibility while rewarding energy and enthusiasm. By nominating yourself for a role, you agree that you have read and understood all of the relevant rules and policies.
Read the Candidates' Pack
All candidates can attend a Candidates Briefing which will take place on Microsoft Teams at 17:00 on Tuesday, 7 March, and 12:00 on Wednesday, 8 March.
All successfully nominated candidates will receive calendar invites for the briefings above and more information on the voting period and campaigning rules. Please send any specific queries to email@example.com.
Withdrawing your nomination
If you have nominated yourself for a position and would like to step down, you need to follow the steps below
Log in to your eVoting account
Log in to your eVoting platform account (imperialcollegeunion.org/vote.)
Log in using your college ID (e.g. kthack15).
Head to 'Manage Candidacy and Manifesto'
Once logged in, the landing page will appear with a drop down 'Manage Candidacy and Manifesto' on the top right (note: this will only show until opening of voting, and will include withdrawn positions)
This will take you to the 'My Candidacy' screen for the selected position, where you will need to scroll down to the 'Withdrawing' section
If you experience any activities, campaigning or behaviour that does not adhere to our election rules or bi-laws, please report it to the Union. We have the complaints app for any election complaints available for candidates and committee members to report.
