Election Rules

 If you're standing for a position in the MDXSU Elections, or if you're campaigning for a particular candidate, you must abide by the election rules

For the roles of a Student Officer and Student Trustee please see the March 2020 Election Rules and Regulations here

If you are applying for the role of a Student Group Leader role, you can find the Student Group Elections Rules and Regulations here

Prior to voting opening, all candidates will need to attend a compulsory elections briefing which will explain the rules and give you the opportunity to ask questions.

Training and Resources

Middlesex Students' Union will provide all the training, support and advice you need to stand for a position and campaign - and do your job once elected! As well as giving you a coach to support you throughout the elections, we also offer free training sessions on manifesto writing, campaigning and public speaking.


Any student can submit a complaint about a candidate or their campaign team or about the election processes until 1 hour after the close of voting. Complaints received after this time will not be considered unless they call into question the integrity of the election. To submit a complaint, fill out the complaints form and send it to elections@mdx.ac.uk.

Other Resources

MDXSU strongly is committed to ensuring all students are treated equally, without discrimination. All elections candidates are expected to abide by our Equal Opportunities Policy which can be found here.
