Each department elects a Subject Chair. Subject Chairs are the key link between each academic department and the Students’ Guild. It is the responsibility of Subject Chairs to find out the opinions of students in their department, and to represent them at Student Staff Liaison Committees each term. The role is important in ensuring that exceptional academic standards are maintained across the University, ensuring that positive changes are implemented for every student, and in maintaining communication between the University and the Students’ Guild.

Posts with no candidates will re-open for nominations in the Autumn Term 2013.
This document concerns the rules for the operation and procedures of all Guild Elections.
The Senior Elections Officer shall make every ruling on the interpretation of the rules.
Any clarifications or interpretations of the rules will be communicated to all candidates at the daily candidates meeting during the sabbatical elections only.
All other clarifications and interpretations of the rules will be communicated by email.
All Guild members should contact firstname.lastname@example.org if they have any query regarding the rules, and before they engage in any action that may be in breach of the rules.
Do not do anything that another Candidate cannot do.
Treat all other students and staff with respect.
No acting as a Returning Officer.
No Posters are to be put up by Candidates or their teams anywhere in the Forum, or on the Piazza outside the Forum entrances.
Breach of Rules
All breaches of the rules will be punished in one way – through the application of a disqualification margin;
For the hour following any breach or the hour following any complaint of a breach of the Election Rules the number of votes cast will be counted,
If the number of votes counted has been significantly increased on a year-by-year comparison with similar stages of the previous election then the Senior Elections Officer will announce which time has been used as evidence, and how many votes have been ‘influenced’ by the action;
The number of votes ‘influenced’ by the action will be applied against the final vote tally of the Candidate when counting takes place, and they will have to win by the margin of those votes;
If the Candidate fails to win by the margin at any point, they will be eliminated from the count.
Breach of Law or Regulations
The Students’ Guild Bye-Laws and Code of Conduct apply to everyone during any election. Any breaches of these Regulations, of the University Disciplinary Code or the laws of the UK may carry either a disqualification margin or complete disqualification.
In the case of total disqualification, the NUS (as neutral final Returning Officer) will be asked to rule on the seriousness of the Breach before a Candidate is disqualified. This decision is not subject to appeal.
