Election fever is here at Liverpool Guild of Students, Liverpool Students’ Union, and Liverpool Hope Students’ Union. We are delighted to announce that LSRadio, Looprevil Radio and THIS Radio, are coming together to produce The SO Elections Broadcast 2017, which will be broadcast live on LSRadio this year on Friday 10th March from 7pm!
The broadcast will consist of running commentaries, live interviews, and of course revealing the newly elected or re-elected student officers for each student union.
In addition to this exciting collaboration, we would like to invite you to complete our student EXIT POLL, where we will be asking who you voted for this week, to determine our predictions for this year’s Student Officer Elections – the results of our exit poll will be revealed live at the top of Friday’s broadcast.
THE RESULTS – As revealed on The SO Elections Broadcast 2017
This Exit Poll was comprised of 40 responses from students who voted for their respective Universities. It was concluded that the low respondent rate was perhaps due to the late release of this exit poll, which was on Wednesday 8th March 2017. The results were as follows:
University of Liverpool (Liverpool Guild of Students) – The Top Four Candidates
Rory Hughes OR Grace Farnham
Exit Poll predicted correctly – with exception of Rory Hughes very closely making it to the Vice President position
Liverpool John Moores University (Liverpool Students’ Union) – The Candidates with Most Votes for their Positions
For President – Daniel Crombleholme OR Bahrom Bin Mohd Isa
For VP of Activities – Jamie Parr
For VP of Community Engagement – Ryan Seager
For VP of Academic Quality – Ellie Backhouse (by default as only running candidate for position)
Exit Poll declared too close to call, as data was insufficient and contained many anomalies
The elected candidates were Yasmin Ibrahim (President), Rachael Smart (VP Activities), Howisha Charlery (VP Community Engagement) and Ellie Backhouse (VP Academic Quality)
Liverpool Hope University (Liverpool Hope Students’ Union) – The Candidates with Most Votes for their Positions
For President – Jack Johnson
For VP of Education – David Seow
For VP of Welfare and Community – Jessica Marran
Exit Poll predicted correctly that Jack Johnson would be elected
The elected candidates were Feidhelm Doolan (VP Education) and Vanessa Ospina (VP Welfare and Community)
