The AUC Student Council takes care of the student representation to the AUC Board, the management, DUWO, and other external parties, such as the UvA and VU. The elections for the Student Council take place every year at the end of the second semester.
Instead of individual candidates, the Student Council Elections work with lists. This means that you will have to find and team up with people who want to achieve similar things in the Student Council. After having formed a list, you can start drafting a Policy Plan to show to the students of AUC what you stand for and why they should vote for your list. Prior to the elections, there will be a campaign period in which you can promote your party in any way you would like to. The elections then take two days, in which all AUC students may cast an anonymous vote for a list. Exactly how votes are allocated is explained in the “Explanation Voting System” document under the Procedures tab.
