Use your vote

It’s not quite the European election, but as always in democratic structures: Use your vote to support its democratic foundation! For real, a high voter turnout will help whoever gets elected to truthfully speak for us as Doctoral Researchers within FAU. To put it more clearly: Not voting automatically weakens our say!

Good news: Voting in the FAU election is as simple as voting in the European elections in Estonia.

It’s possible within 1 minute online:

Remember: You have 2 votes in total and can give either 2 votes to 1 candidate or 1 vote each to 2 candidates.

The elections run until 19.06.2024 9:00. Obviously, voting as soon as possible ensures to certainly use your vote and have a say.

  • MedFak: 5 Candidates
