The electoral system used is called as the proportional representation in which multiple candidates are elected through allocations to an electoral list. This means that candidates who share the same field of study or the same ideology are on the same electoral list. So when you're giving your vote to a candidate, you're also voting for the candidate's electoral list. The constitution of a new council is therefore based on electoral list's percentage of the ballot.
Demands for rectification of the electoral lists should be given to the chairperson of Tamko's central election committee Tiia Lempinen by 8.10. (tiia.lempinen(at)soc.tamk). Electoral lists are visible at tamko.fi, Tamko's office (Solu) and on campuses' noticeboards from week 40 until the end of voting time.
