1. Voting for the Student member to University Council will be conducted by an anonymous online ballot that is accessed using a unique and secure link emailed to all eligible students.

3. Voters are to mark their vote on the voting form by inserting the figure “1” opposite the name of the candidate to whom the voter wishes to give their first preference.

4. If the voter wishes to show their order of preference for any or all of the remaining candidates, the voter may do so by inserting the figures “2”, “3”, “4” and so on, as the case requires, opposite the names of any of the remaining candidates so as to indicate by numerical sequence the order of their preference for the candidates.
