Electoral system

Leiden University has both a list system and a candidate system for elections. Co-participation councils decide for themselves which system they will use.

List system

The list system places the emphasis on the lists. Voters select one candidate on one list. Therefore by selecting a candidate, they also select one of the lists.

Candidate system

The candidate system places the emphasis on individual candidates. Each voter casts multiple votes. For example, if there are 5 seats to be filled, each voter casts 5 votes. The candidates who receive the most votes are elected.
