How the Election works: 

  • All members can apply for, or nominate someone else, for any of the open positions during the application and nomination period. If you get nominated, the Election Committee will send you an email with what position you were nominated for. The nominations are anonymous.
  • When the first application and nomination period is over, the Election Committee will publish all the applications so that all members can read about the applicants and prepare questions for the Election Pub.
  • All applicants will be interviewed during the Election Pub, and they will then get the chance to convince the audience that they are the best candidate for the position. Two interviewers will prepare questions and speak with the applicants on the stage, and everyone in the audience can ask questions. The applicants who are abroad, or for some reason can’t participate get the option to send a video with the answers to their questions.
  • The second application period opens the day after the Election Pub (you can’t nominate during this period). If you think you’re a better candidate than the others who applied, or if you just realized that you want to apply, this is your last chance.
  • When the second application period is over, the Election Committee will publish a final list with the applicants. By this time, the voting period will start, and all members have the opportunity to vote for the candidate they think is most suitable for the position. All members can vote for one person for each position. They also have the chance to put blank vote (if they don’t have an opinion for that position) or “vakant” (if they don’t think that any of the candidates are a good fit for the position). The members can chose to not vote on all positions.
  • The voting period ends at the day of the Annual Meeting. The result of the election will be announced at the Annual Meeting, and has to be officially accepted by the meeting.
  • The candidates that got the most votes, and get accepted by the Annual Meeting, will officially start their mandate period on the 1st of July.
