Elections

The LSESU Elections are one of the most important dates in the calendar. This is an opportunity to nominate yourself to represent others or vote for your favourite candidate.

About the elections

Your reps shape LSESU's work, influence LSE committees and impact your student experience. Running for a rep position is one of the best ways to have your say on how your Students' Union is run and create change at LSE - it's also a valuable source of professional work experience.

We run elections twice a year; during Michaelmas Term and during Lent Term.
