Referendum - All Student Vote

Referendums - Overview

Referendums are All-Student Votes and give you the ultimate say in the big decisions in your Students’ Union. Any student can call (and vote in) a Referendum – the highest decision-making body in the Union.

If you have a campaign that you want the student body to support, you can demand that a Referendum is held, by either:

  • Getting the signatures of 1.5% of the student population at Queen’s
  • Asking Student Council to call a Referendum

You can request that the Students’ Union host a digital petition to demand that a referendum is held on a particular issue. If you want to call a Referendum, contact the SU Voice team. They can advise you in confidence before you get started.
