How to cast your vote

Please click on the 'Vote' button. Now you can log on with your own ULCN user name and password. For authentication the safe portal of SURFconext, uAcces, is used. When using uAccess for the first time, you will be asked to share your login. It is safe to continue.

After you have logged on, you will see on the left the election or elections in which you are entitled to vote.

Click on the election in which you want to vote. Two systems are used in the university elections: a 'candidate system' and a 'list system'.

If you vote for the University Council and for the Faculty Councils of Humanities (students), Law, Social and Behavioural Sciences and Science, a list system applies. In this case, you will see the lists for your constituency.

If you vote for the Faculty Councils of Archaeology, Campus The Hague, Humanities (staff members), the LUMC Student Council and all departmental councils, a candidate system applies. If this is the case, you will immediately see the candidates for your constituency.

Candidate system

Please see the candidates for your electoral group.

The candidate system uses 'Multiple Voting' which means that you can choose as many candidates as there are seats available. Please number the candidates in sequence, starting with '1' for your most preferred candidate, 2 for your second-choice candidate and so on.

Please note: you can choose as many candidates as there are seats available, but you can also choose any smaller number of candidates, for instance by just awarding ‘1’ to your first-choice candidate.

Click on the ‘Vote’ button to cast your vote. You can register a nil vote by clicking on the ‘Nil’ button.

You will now see a list of your chosen candidate(s) in order of preference, or you will be asked if you wish to cast a nil vote.

Confirm your vote by clicking on the ‘Vote’ button or the ‘Nil’ button.

You can now see that you have cast your vote.
Click 'Next' to go to your overview and either continue with another election or to go to 'to log off'.

To log off, you will be directed to the uAccess portal to log off or you must close the browser completely.

List system

Confirm your vote by clicking the 'Vote' button or the 'Nil' button.
