All union members are eligible for candidacy, either as an individual candidate or together with other candidates on a list. The union members will then vote in the elections where you will campaign for votes.
There is still the possibility of candidates until March 31st. To be a candidate for the council, you need to fill in and submit (or submit) a candidate's assurance. Information on how to do this is available at gotastudentkar.se/kårvalet. Click here for detailed information (OBS! Swedish only).
