Be a candidate for the elections of 2021
Hand in your candidacy form via firstname.lastname@example.org on March 22nd, 23rd and 24th, 2021.
Who can run in the elections?
If your name appears on the electoral role, you can also register as a candidate for the representation of the board for which you are eligible to vote. You can access the electoral role by contacting the Electoral Office.
Register individually or as part of a party
You can be an individual candidate, or form a party (fractie) (of maximum 30 candidates per party). The disadvantage of forming a one-member party is that you have no spare candidates. This means you cannot appoint a successor, if you were to leave the Council before completing your term. The higher your position on the list, the more likely you are to be elected. Please ask the Electoral Office for more information.
How do you register as a candidate?
- To register you have to fill in a candidacy form. These forms will be available as of February 15th, 2021. You can obtain a form here or by e-mail email@example.com.
- No co-signatures are needed due to the coronavirus restrictions.
- Every candidate can only be on one list per election (that is per council).
- Completed forms have to be handed in on March 22nd, 23rd, and 24th, 2021 before 16.30h via firstname.lastname@example.org (the Electoral office).
Special procedure due to corona restrictions
You can register as a candidate on March 22nd, 23rd, and 24th 2021 (until 16.30h) via email@example.com. You will receive a receipt within 60 minutes. If you don't receive a receipt within that time, please contact the Electoral Office (013 466 2805). You are no longer requested to provide supporting signatures and candidates that have not signed their own candidacy, can be added in the cc with the request to confirm their candidacy by e-mail.
Of course you want to get elected. This means you’ve got some campaigning to do. One contribution towards your campaign is presenting yourself on the elections website.
You can also make your own material, for which the university has a limited budget available.
If you want to know more about important dates concerning the elections, please read the schedule on the elections.
