All Student Vote

It's time for you to have your say.

The All Student Vote (ASV) is your chance to debate and vote on the ideas and motions your fellow students have submitted. These can relate to all the different aspects of the student experience from whether your lecturers should use lecture capture to the environmental work the Union and University do. 

How does it work?

We hold an All Student Vote each term and Student Council decide what topics, motions and ideas go to an All Student Vote for debate and decision. ASVs are a weeklong event that starts on the Monday with a debate on the motions. Then it's time to cast your vote from Tuesday to Friday and you have to decide whether you agree (FOR) or disagree (AGAINST) the motion. You can also choose to abstain if you feel you are neither for nor against the motion or idea.

At the end of the week, we count up your votes to find out whether the motion passes into policy (so the Union and your Student Officers start acting on it) or if you have decided that it is not something you want the Union to work on.

When is the next All Student Vote?
The next All Student Vote has not been set. However, we run one each term so expect one soon.

How can I get involved?

There are four ways that you can get involved with an All Student Vote.

1) You can always submit a motion to Student Council to be considered at an All Student Vote. This is a great opportunity if you have an idea on how the Union and/or University can do something that would improve the experience of students at Warwick.

2) You can attend one of the All Student Vote meetings and debate the motion(s) you are interested in. You can also attend Student Council to voice your opinions on the motion before it goes to an All Student Vote, or to ensure that Council send it to an All Student Vote.

3) You can simply cast your vote when an All Student Vote takes place, and encourage your fellow students to do the same.

4) You can formally register to run a campaign either for or against the motion in order to encourage other students to vote either way. This is not compulsory for an All Student Vote to take place - however, if you do register a campaign, you get:

  • To have a FOR or AGAINST statement placed on the website along with the content of the motion itself so that other students can read your point of view.

  • Receive £15 for campaign expenses to help you encourage others to vote.
