What is a Referendum?
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 2.5% of the student population at Queen’s
- Asking Student Council to call a Referendum
If you want to call a Referendum, contact the Student Voice team. They can advise you in confidence before you get started.
