2015.10.21 | Signe Opstrup

This year, students are eligible to vote for representatives to AU’s board, the academic councils, the PhD committees and the boards of study. Academic and technical-administrative employees are eligible to vote for representatives to the board and the academic councils.

Stand for election

You can stand as a candidate in the AU elections to collegial bodies (councils/boards/committees) in the period Monday 26 October at 9:00 to Friday 6 November at noon. Learn more at au.dk/valg.

Check your voting rights

Check your voting rights well in advance of the election. You can do so by logging in to the election system with your civil registration number and your password for Self-service (mit.au.dk). When you have logged in the election system, you can see which bodies you can vote for and when.

Please note that new employees who will not be included in the second payroll run in September (18 September 2015 ) will not be automatically assigned voting rights. The same applies to new students who enrol in their degree programmes after 1 October. If you belong to either of these groups you can contact the Election Secretariat valg@au.dk  in order to be granted voting rights.

When can you vote?

You can cast your vote electronically at au.dk/valg during the election period 23 November at 9:00- 26 November at 16:00. Log on to the system with your civil registration number and password for Self-service (mit.au.dk). You cannot vote by post or by paper ballot.
