2023 Council Elections in the Group of Students

The elections for the Senate and the faculty councils for the Student Group will be held from June 19 to 23, 2023. At the same time, the elections for the student councils will be carried out by secret ballot. For more information, please refer to the German webpages on elections offered by the AStA Students' Committee.

If students apply for an absentee ballot for either of these two elections, then the application is valid for both, as long as the students are eligible to vote in both elections.
