POSTPONEMENT Submit your candidacy for the University elections.

20 February 2020

Postponement of the 2020 University Elections

Due to the outbreak of the corona virus, the university is requesting students not to come to university and urging employees to work from home as much as possible. For this reason, the 2020 University Elections are being postponed for the time being.

This means that the submission of candidacy scheduled for Tuesday 17 and Wednesday 18 March is canceled! The reference date and the inspection of electoral register are being moved. The elections scheduled for April 20-23 are also postponed.

The new data will be communicated via the website and the Mare. For questions, please contact the Central Electoral Committee: w.j.de.wit@bb.leidenuniv.nl.

Do you have a strong opinion about the direction the University should take? Do you want to further develop yourself in the field of networking, negotiating, debating and assessing policy? On 17 or 18 March, submit your candidacy for the University elections. 

How do you stand for election?

To stand for election, fill in the relevant form and submit it to the central polling office on 17 or 18 March. For more information on standing for election and the required forms, see the staff and student participation website or contact the relevant polling station.
