SRC Elections voter information

Voter Information


All undergraduate students of the University of Sydney (those currently undertaking either an undergraduate degree or diploma, or those who are non-degree students) are eligible to vote. You must be currently enrolled to vote.

Voters are able to vote in four separate ballots to elect the SRC President, Editors of Honi Soit, Representatives to Council, and Delegates to the National Union of Students. The voting system used in all ballots is similar to the Senate voting system: optional preferential voting, with both above the line ‘ticket’ voting and below the line voting in the Representatives and Delegates elections.

On-campus polling will be held on the 19th, 20th, and 21st, September 2023:

Jane Foss Russell: Tues–Thurs 8:45am – 5:15pm
Fisher Library: Wed & Thurs 8:45am – 5:15pm
Manning House: Wed 10:45am – 3:15pm
Conservatorium of Music: Wed 10:30am – 3:30pm
Susan Wakil Health Building: Thurs 10:45am – 3:15pm
Peter Nicol Russell Building: Thurs 10:45am – 3:15pm


Voters who are unable to vote in-person at the specified times above are able to request an online absentee vote. Registration for online absentee voting is available via this link, and closes on 7 September 2023 at 5.00pm.

Late registrations for absentee voting may be considered up until 5:00pm Monday 18 September 2023.

Absentee ballots are not granted automatically. You must demonstrate that you fall into one of the following categories:

  • You are unable to attend a polling booth on any polling day because of illness, infirmity, or approaching childbirth
  • You are unable to attend a polling booth on any polling day because of a physical, mental, intellectual or sensory disability
  • You are unable to attend a polling booth on any polling day because you will be outside Greater Sydney without any reasonable means of returning to Greater Sydney in time for any polling day
  • You are unable to attend a polling booth on any polling day because of being required to attend to work responsibilities
  • You are unable to attend a polling booth on any polling day due to some other reason or circumstance, subject to the Electoral Officer’s approval

In all cases, you will be required to provide evidence to warrant your claims. Please note that it is not acceptable for any individual to fill out many forms for many different voters with identical submissions.
