Last night saw all the months of planning, days of campaigning and sleepless nights come down to the all important moment: Results Night. The atmosphere in Room 1 was incredible, with campaign teams out in force to support their friends who have worked so hard to be elected by the student body to hold VP Executive roles. With 7752 votes cast-the most that have ever been had in a Loughborough Students Union Election-all who campaigned must be proud that they were part of this achievement, and were able to garner so much interest from students in this years Exec Elections.
Having followed the candidates closely, and getting to know them personally, the whole of the Label Committee would like to congratulate all involved. All campaigned passionately and all proved themselves to be worthy contenders. With four roles uncontested (and results on what will happen to the role of VP College still undecided), and other positions such as VP Sport, VP Rag and VP Societies all proving very popular, it has been an incredibly interesting Elections, with it being very difficult to try and determine the outcome. But results are now official, and the students have chosen their winners. Label are positive that your new Exec will be successful and will thrive to make sure we can all enjoy our time here at Loughborough as best we can.
Label Online are proud to welcome your new Exec.
