So (pun not intended)…whether or not you were able to attend Results’ Night last night, here’s a summary of where things stood at the end of each elimination stage. As each candidate was eliminated, their aggregated votes were allocated according to the voter’s second preference and so on.
At the start of the night, with all the candidates ranked in order of their total number of ‘first preference’ votes, Harry Anderson had 671 votes, putting him comfortably ahead of Alex Ferguson’s 592.
The first candidate to be eliminated was Isaac Lual.
Stage 1 saw off three more candidates: Sadiq Haruna, Fred Wongraven and Hayfa Ali.
At Stage 2, Jack Stanley was eliminated.
At Stage 3, Alex Bjerkholt was eliminated.
At Stage 4, Becky Garnault was eliminated.
At Stage 5, Xinxin Cao was eliminated.
At Stage 6, Grace Edwards was eliminated.
Finally, at Stage 7, Will Harding was eliminated, and the final four were announced as the new Student Officers, with Harry Anderson being re-elected as Guild President.
Overall, the four ultimately successful candidates remained in a strong position ahead throughout the night.
