If, for whatever reason, you do not think that any of the students standing for a position ought to be elected, then you can choose RON as a preference on the online ballot. A vote to ‘re-open nominations’ indicates that you do not wish to be represented by any of the other candidates standing. If RON wins, the role will stand vacant until another election is organised. Due to the time pressures of NUS Conference, if RON wins in the NUS delegate election, then Durham SU willl need to look into filling the vacant delegate positions in other ways.
