Results published


Semester one policy round

Polling has closed and the results for policy have been established. For policy results to be counted, 5% of students must vote on the policy, called quorum, which stands at 940 votes. In this round, the following were the total votes cast. 

Only one policy met the quorum threshold, 'Cooperative Solutions to Our Bus Nightmare'. The results were as followed:

FOR 823

Therefore the result of this ballot is CARRIED. 

The other policies, with exception of 'SU Support for Staff' and 'Improving Access To The University For Bath Refugees', will be automatically submitted to vote in the next policy round in Semester 2. 

The following policies did not go to student vote, this is because the SU believes it should have policy relating to these matters and will be working with the proposers to refine the policy to be submitted to the Board of Trustees.
