E is for…A-Z Guide
How do I run as a candidate in the Students’ Union elections?
Couldn’t be simpler! Just get 20 signatures nominating you and hand them in before the specified date. However, it’s best to talk to a current officer of the Union before diving head first into something like that!
Should I vote in national elections?
Yes! An election can be called at any time. It is your chance to have a say in the future of the country. Make sure that you are on the Register of Electors and thus eligible to vote. Log on to Check the Register or contact the Students’ Union for more information and assistance. When you graduate, don’t forget to register to vote in the Seanad elections.
How can I spot them?
Keep an eye out for woolly jumpers, chequered shirts, pens in pockets and other stereotypes! They are known to roam in packs towards sandwich bars during lunch times, and on occasion, have been seen haphazardly building models of Croke Park from empty pizza boxes and milk cartons.
What happens if I get evicted?
Well, it very much depends on your lease and the circumstances behind the eviction. Talk to the Students’ Union Welfare Officer for information.
