Be a candidate for the elections
From March 13, 2023 (00.01 hours) till March 15, 2023 (23.59 hours) you can run for election and stand as a candidate by digitally completing the application form. You will receive an invitation e-mail with a link to the voting application.
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?
- On March 13, 2023 you will receive an invitation e-mail with a link to the voting application. You can put yourself forward as a candidate in the voting application.
- Every candidate can only be on one list per election (that is per council).
Of course you want to get elected. This means you’ve got some campaigning to do. One contribution towards your campaign is presenting yourself in the voting application by filling in the candidate profile.
The candidate profile will be published on Tilburg University's website as well.
If you want to know more about important dates concerning the elections, please read the schedule on the elections.
