The LSE Students’ Union Elections are one of the most important dates in the calendar. This is an opportunity to either nominate yourself to be the next student representative or vote for the best candidate.

About the elections

Your Student representatives shape the Students' Union's work, influence LSE decision making committees and impact your student experience for one whole year. We run elections twice a year; during Michaelmas Term in October and during Lent Term in March.

Running for a student rep position is one of the best ways to have your say on how your Students' Union is run, create change at LSE, as well as being a valuable source of professional work experience.

Voting is now closed in the Michaelmas Term elections. Thank you for taking part! You can find out the results further down this page.
