Election procedures

Lupe

The comittee to be elected is the Student Parliament, comprising 60 members.

The election will be held in accordance with the principles of personalised proportional representation. Whereby voters choose a list and cast their vote by voting for one applicant of that list. The vote that is cast applies to both the applicant and the list to which this person is affiliated. Seats are apportioned across the entire list in proportion to the total number of votes cast, using the largest remainder method (Hare/Niemeyer). The seat(s) of a list are assigned to its affiliated applicants in descending order of accumulated personal votes.

Party list nominations

All students enrolled at Technische Universität Berlin are eligible to contest a seat in the Student Parliament. However nominations are only admitted as party lists comprising of at least five applicants and backed by at least ten eligible voters, whereby the applicants’ consent also counts as backing for the party list nomination.

The deadline to submit such party list nominations is set on 26 May 2017 at 3 p.m..

It is crucial to use the current forms to submit your party list nomination.

To avoid cancelation of applicants from party lists we recommend that you check in advance if you are listed in the electoral roll. That roll is on display at the office of the Central Election Comittee (Zentraler Wahlvorstand) from 2 May through 26 May 2017.

Vote in person

Lupe

Conventionally you cast your vote in person at the ballot box. These regular polling stations are sectioned by surname and can be found in the foyer of the main building, in front of cafeteria "Wetterleuchten" (sector 0K according to the guidance system).

Before casting your vote, you have to show

  • an official photo identification (e.g. identity card, driver's licence, passport) and
  • a document, which verifies your name and matriculation number (e.g. student card, matriculation document.

In addition to the regular polling stations in the main building there are mobile polling stations for postal vote only (see below).

All polling stations (including the mobile ones) are open throughout from 9.45 a.m. to 4.15 p.m. during the election week [3 July to 7 July 2017].

Vote by ballot box should be preferred over postal vote, because it is less time and effort for everyone involved.

Absentee voting

Lupe

Voters unable to vote in person in the main building between 3 July and 7 July 2017 are eligible to apply for postal vote. You can do that either as "postal vote on site" at one of the mobile polling stations or as absentee vote by post. To qualify, you will need to file an informal application with the student election committee (Studentischer Wahlvorstand).

To facilitate an application providing all information we need to process it, you will receive an application form by post two weeks before the election. Alternatively you can use this web form.

Voters applying for an absentee vote will receive the absentee ballot documents from the election committee in the post. Absentee ballots must be submitted to the election committee or to an election supervisor (at one of the polling stations) before the deadline for the election closes, i.e. by no later than 4:15 p.m. on 7 July 2017. When applying for an absentee vote, please take into account the postage and processing times!

Vote by ballot box should be preferred over postal vote, because it is less time and effort for everyone involved.
