Election principles

  1. A majority vote takes place without any commitment to the proposed applicants.

  2. All doctoral students accepted on the day of the election are entitled to vote actively and passively; an electoral roll is not published.

  3. The confirmed application for acceptance as a doctoral candidate is particularly suitable as proof of entitlement to vote, which must be submitted on request when exercising the right to vote.

  4. Each voter has seven votes, with each eligible person having a maximum of one vote.

Formalities and content of a candidateship

For candidates of elections to become a representative an official form (see at top) can be downloaded. The official form needs to be sent to the election management within the period stipulated. Only when in time, candidates can be taken into account on ballot papers and be anounced bevor.

Election of the board

The board consists of seven people. This ensures that each faculty is represented by at least one person - provided that at least one person from this faculty has received at least two votes. Each person has 7 votes, each person can be given 1 vote.

Other people can be written on the ballot paper, the person must be clearly identifiable and be accepted as a doctoral student at the University of Ulm. The votes do not have to go to people who belong to the same faculty.

Distribution of seats

The following example is intended to explain how the mandates are distributed after the count.


  • The election results are shown on the left. The colors represent the faculty affiliation of the persons standing for election, next to them are the number of votes that each person received.
  • In a first step, the candidates from each faculty with the most votes are selected. These people are set for the board. If no person was elected for a faculty, this seat will not be filled in this step.
  • In a second step, the remaining seats are filled according to the number of votes until the seven members of the board are determined. The faculty affiliation no longer plays a role.


Move up

If a person does not accept the election or resigns, the person with the most votes moves up, regardless of the faculty affiliation. Exception: the person leaving was the only representative of a faculty - in this case the next candidate from the same faculty succeeds.

Voting on the Rules of Procedure

The Rules of Procedure are voted on whenever they need to be changed. At least 50 valid votes must be cast to change the rules of procedure. It can only be changed with a two-thirds majority. If a change to the rules of procedure is planned, this must be announced at least four weeks before the actual vote.
