No in-person voting will take place this year due to the current situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. This year you will have the opportunity to cast your ballot online for the first time. You still also have the possibility of voting by absentee ballot. Both alternatives will be explained below.
This year university elections will be conducted online (electronic voting) alongside the equal opportunities elections and the elections of the student council and the student representatives. Voting will take place via the Löwenportal between 10 am on Monday, 7 December 2020 and 3 pm on Tuesday, 15 December 2020. Detailed information will follow shortly.
Applying for absentee voting
As every year, the university and the student council offer you the opportunity to sign up for absentee voting documents by e-mail. To do this, send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org and include your matriculation number and the address to which the voting documents should be sent. You can request your absentee voting documents starting from when the election is announced until 4 pm on 16 November 2020. These will be sent out by post starting 24 November 2020 and must be completed and received by the university’s election office by 3 pm on 15 December 2020. The form to sign up for absentee voting for the university committees can be found on the website of the university’s election office.
