In spite of a background of a nationwide HE crisis and a global pandemic, 3,207 Durham students came together and voted for their next Student Officers, Student Trustees, and NUS delegates.
Congratulations to all candidates for their passion and commitment to their online campaigns, and to their campaign teams for all their hard work. We hope you’re all incredibly proud of putting your vision for Durham forward and getting 14.6% of students to vote.
Let’s be honest - this year was particularly tough for all candidates running in any Durham election, whether that’s in college, their student groups or the SU. There’s been no social opportunities to make banners or dish out flyers, stickers or sweets. Fewer opportunities to talk to students in-person about the issues and challenges they face in Durham. The candidates all deserve recognition for continuing to run excellent online campaigns and reaching out to students, many of whom aren’t even in Durham, about how they want to make the future better. We know this has been incredibly challenging but it’s vital to making our University better.
