The biggest election at UCL ever, with more students voting than at any other UK University this year. The Leadership Race was record-breaking and we can now introduce you to the new team of Sabbatical Officers who will lead the Union from July 2021. Ilyas, Ayman and Yasmeen were all re-elected and they'll be joined by Viktoria, Osman and Arifa. Scroll down to see their profiles and manifestos. During the Leadership Race students also elected the Part-time Officers who'll be representing them next year and the 1,000s of club and society committee members.
9,473 students voted - the most ever at UCL and up by 73% on last year. The previous record voting number was 2018's 6,763.
19.58% of all UCL students voted, a 53% increase on last year. A third of all Undergraduates voted and 18.5% of all postgraduates voted.
Turnout in the Medical School was a huge 44.3%.
Our turnout percentage was higher than Durham, Leeds, Oxford, Manchester and York. But as far as the total voters statistic is concerned, we're way out ahead with our closest competitor, Manchester, recording 6,573 voters.
