election budget


Note: the budget information below may change if we have an extremely high number of candidates. It is very unlikely to change, but if they do, you will be updated in time to plan your spending.

To make sure that every candidate has the same resources and no-one has an unfair advantage, the SU has decided that:

  • for Full-Time Officer positions, you can spend £50 on your campaign (no more);
  • for all Part-time Officer positions and Convenors and NUS,  you can spend £20 on your campaign (No More)
  • All of the money you spend (whether it's £50 or a bit less) will be refunded by the SU.

You must keep track of how much you are spending and what you are spending it on - so keep your receipts! Once the election is over, you must submit this information to the SU by printing, completing and returning this form so we can be sure that every candidate had the same resources. You must submit this spending information or you could end up being disqualified - and if you don't submit your expenses information, we won't be able to refund you.

Please ensure you read the election rules here before you spend!
