Nomination of candidates ends on 29.9.2019 at 3 pm – Remember to submit the election documents on time

The nomination period of candidates is soon coming to its end and the Candidate Lists and its candidates’ information must be submitted to ISYY by 29.9. by 3 pm. If you have founded your list or nominated yourself as a candidate electronically, the necessary documents have already been delivered to ISYY via the electronic election system. However, if you have created your list and collected its candidates information in paper format, please return the documents to ISYY’s offices during opening hours or to ISYY’s mailbox.
The election documents consist of the following documents that you can find on the Election Documents -page:

  • Document of Candidate's approval and assurance
  • Announcement of the representative of the list
  • Suggestion for the candidate list
  • Announcement of the electoral coalition of lists

ISYY’s offices are open during the remaining candidate nomination period as follows:
Monday 27.9. and Tuesday 28.9. from 10 am till 3 pm and Wednesday 29.9. from 12 pm till 3 pm.

We would like to include the contact information of the Candidate Lists’ Spokespersons to the ‘Spokespersons for Candidate Lists’ section on our website so that we can together ease the life of students who are interested in becoming candidates and interested in the different lists.

For this reason, we ask that all Spokespersons would email their contact information and a short description of their list/greeting (max. 300 characters) by Monday 27.9. to our Coordinator of the Representative Council Elections (vaalikoordinaattori(at)isyy.fi). Additionally, you can include a link to your list’s website if you have one. We’ll publish the information on ISYY’s website as they are sent to us.

Also, remember that the Candidate Lists still have an opportunity for campaigning on both campuses next week on 28.9. and 29.9.! You can find more information about this and the sign-up from the news piece that is linked to the ‘Read more’ section below.

We encourage everyone to nominate themselves as candidates in the Representative Council Elections by establishing their own List of Candidates or by joining one of the already existing Candidate Lists. You have until Wednesday 29.9. 3 pm to decide! You can find more information about nominating yourself as a candidate and how to establish your own list from the ‘For Candidates’ section under the Election page in the menu.
