OUSA Elections

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be in charge of a multi-million dollar organization that has about twenty-thousand members? Have you ever had a cool idea that you wanted to happen? Well you can if you run to be part of the OUSA Executive! We have elections usually once a year around August to elect the executive for next year. It's easy peasy to run, just rock up at the OUSA office with two buddies and fill out a nomination form and you're on your way to making the world a better place? Take your place dah da da ah take your place dah da dah etc etc.

Online Referenda and Student Forums

Online referenda are one of the many ways you can have your say through OUSA. Whether it's about university policy or a wider issue, you can change OUSA's stance.

Online referenda are used to guide OUSA policy; it's a direct online vote allowing every University of Otago student to have their say.

Student forums provide an opportunity for students to discuss the questions that will be in the Online Referenda. You can also submit your own questions/motions for online referenda. For example, if you think OUSA should support or oppose the Stadium, you can submit a referendum question so that students can have a say.
