Emma Howes ‘I’m Emma and I have been the deputy returning officer for these elections. First of all I’d like to thank every one of our 71 candidates, across every role, for their hard work, their positivity and their passion this past fortnight. The move to online only campaigning has been challenging and it has been a pleasure to see the variety of videos, images and articles which our candidates have shared. In total ARU students have cast 6850 votes – which is an outstanding achievement given the situation and a reflection of all of the candidate’s hard work’
