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:

  • You can only spend up to £50 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 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.
