Students' Union Referendum 2018: Results Update

No ratings yet. Log in to rate.

Polling in the RGU:Union executive restructure referendum took place earlier this week, between the 29th and 30th January.

Over 1100 students participated and took the time to cast a vote, however as this number falls below the 1300 required, as outlined in the Union regulations, the result of the referendum cannot be implemented currently.

The final results were:


"Do you approve of the proposed changes to the RGU:Union executive structure?"

Yes: 1007 votes
No: 59 votes
Abstain: 37 votes


Although we are unable to follow through with the planned restructure at this stage, the Union team would like to express huge thanks to all students who took the time to vote in the referendum.

Finally, congratulations go to first year Forensics & Analytical Science student Lewis Lamond, who cast a vote and was drawn as the winner in our £100 prize draw.
