Relevant information regarding the election

  1. How are elections held?
    • You will receive two ballot papers for the university election, one for the Student Convention and one for the Faculty Council. You have 15 votes for the Convention and 4 votes for the Faculty Council. The following is possible:
      • Voting of lists:
        You only tick your preferred list above. Thus, the candidates of these lists are each given one vote from top to bottom until the maximum number of votes has been reached.
        Attention: If the checked list has fewer persons than votes you can distribute, each candidate receives only one vote – the remaining votes expire!
      • Voting of persons:
        You can split your votes between different candidates, no matter from which list. It should be noted, however, that a maximum of 3 votes can be given to each candidate.
      • You can also perform a mixture of both. Then at first your personal votes will be counted and the rest will be used for your preferred list.
      • Letter ballot: The university election 2024 will take place by online vote.
  2. Where can I vote?
    • The link for digital voting will be provided to you by the university in advance.
