Tue 04 May 2021 11:56:00 AM EEST

The elections for the Student Union of the University of Eastern Finland’s (ISYY) Representative Council will be held as electronic elections in the autumn of 2021. Advance voting takes place on 25.–29.10.2021 and the actual voting day is 3.11.2021.

The elected Representative Council, which consists of 39 members, forms the highest decision-making body of the Student Union. The elections take place every other year and all ISYY members, which include for example degree students studying at UEF, can become candidates. The Representative Council guides the Student Union’s operations by deciding, for instance, the amount of the membership fee, action plan for each year, finances and direction of the Student Union’s future. Every year, the Representative Council appoints the Representative Council Chairpersons as well as the Executive Board.

You can join as a candidate on a candidate list established by you or someone else. Establishing a candidate list is easy and ISYY’s staff will help you if needed. The candidate applications must be delivered to ISYY’s office in paper form or submitted electronically by 29 September 3 pm. More detailed instructions on how to become a candidate and the schedule of the elections are published later in the Election announcement.

Take a chance and become a candidate. By taking part in the Representative Council Elections, you can influence the most important matters of your student life and participate in decision-making.

More information on the elections will be available on ISYY’s website later.
