The winners of the Main Elections 20/21 pose on stage at the results ceremony

It's almost time to cast your votes in the Union's By-Elections, but you don't have to wait long. Voting opens on 27th April at 9.00am and closes on the 30th April at 9.00am. All you need to do is login to the Union of Students website, go to derbyunion.co.uk/elections and cast your votes. Remember, you don't have to vote for all positions at once, you can come back and vote as many times as you like during the voting period.

You also get to vote for all candidates in order of preference, so you can rank them all in order. That means if your first choice doesn't win, your vote will automatically transfer to your second-favourite person so it's not wasted!

You can view the information for each candidate on the elections page but here's a list of our candidates this year:
