The ÖH election 2021, the has its focus on absentee ballot – this is especially important for students who cannot come to their university. We invite all other students to vote locally in order to be able to vote for their student representatives.

On the part of the Ministry of Education, security and hygiene concepts have been drawn up as guidelines for the individual universities so that all students can feel safe when voting on site.

The guide includes the following measures, among others:

– Provision of spare FFP2 masks and disinfectant.

– Members of the electoral commission: wearing an FFP2 mask, providing evidence of a negative Covid-19 test

– Suitable premises such as large lecture halls, auditoriums or outdoor containers with the possibility of regular ventilation

ATTENTION: No negative COVID-19 test is required for the ÖH election on site.
