Start a Referendum

If you want to suggest something that JMSU should do, that you believe all students should be able to vote on, then you can call a referendum. A referendum is basically a vote that all members can take part in – a bit like the EU referendum for Britain, in 2016.

To call a referendum, students need to gather at least 100 signatures. Once this quota is met, it will be sent to the Governance and Policy committee who will consider the factual accuracy and legality of the question. If the committee is satisfied, the question will be sent to referendum.

All questions must suggest action that is in line with our aims and must be answerable by a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ vote or be a choice between two different options. No similar questions can be asked again for a minimum of twelve months.
