Vote Closed!

After anorther successful year of campaigning, Voting Week is over and that only leaves the results to be announced. Results will be live-streamed at 7pm on Friday 5th March (and viewable via YouTube afterwards if you miss it). We would love to thank everyone who voted, shared, or endorsed!

During the week, we pledged to donate 50p per voter to 3 charities: Student Minds, Mermaids, and The Angelou Centre. We are very happy to share that over £1.5K was raised.

Last but not least, thank you to all the incredible candidates, who worked tirelessly through the last month to run amazing campaigns.

Technical Difficulties

From 7:45 am until 9.30 am on 4 March 2021 the NUSU website, including the facility to vote in the NUSU Student Elections, experienced downtime, this was due to our hosts IP address being targeted by a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack that took place throughout the day.

Following the initial attack, the website went down again between 11.30 am and 1.30 pm. Following the second attack, we started the process of being migrated to a different IP address. After each of the significant periods of website outage, to ensure that voters still had the same period of time to vote on each occasion the voting was extended by two hours (initially to 2 pm and then again to 4 pm).

On both occasions, the candidates were informed by email of the extension to the voting period as soon as it was made. Following the migration, we are aware of some slight disruption on some devices during the final two hours of voting. To minimise disruption throughout both IP addresses were left active until the change was confirmed to have been completed.

We are confident that all students who wanted to vote had the opportunity to do so and we strongly believe that this did not affect the integrity of the election. As this was just a DDoS attack there was no risk or breach of data of any kind. This was not targeted directly at NUSU as there are a few sites hosted on the same IP.
