How do I get elected?

You want to get involved yourself and stand for election? First of all, congratulations on making such a good decision!

We have just explained what it means to be elected for a mandate or as a deputy. To stand for election, simply fill in this form – it doesn’t matter how many people are on the list. You can also put your name on the list alone, although lists with more than one candidate usually have a better chance of being elected, and of course you can bring together people with the same or similar interests to give you additional support. But no matter how you do it, the important thing is that three fellow students sign the list, i.e. support your candidacy. Then you have to hand in the form to the electoral office between 16.05.2022 and 25.05.2022 (by 1pm). That’s it!

We would like to give special support to all those who are willing to stand for election with their own list. So please feel free to contact us via the usual communication channels. We are here to help you with more than just advice and support.

How will elections be held?

As has been the case since 2017, there will again be online elections – voting is easy with your university account!

The election portal will not open until 15.06.2022. You will receive the corresponding access link via the “studierende-l – Verteiler” to your OvGU email address. If you still have problems with voting between 15 and 24 June, just have a look here. If it still doesn’t work, please send an email to: wahlamt@ovgu.de.
