Check that you are correctly listed in the register of voters by the deadline #

The joint register of voters for all elections at NTNU is issued each spring and autumn after students’ registration for the semester.  Voters must themselves check how they are recorded in the register of voters. This can be done between the register of voters is issued and the deadline for complaints, two weeks later.

  • The spring register of voters is created 20 February 
  • The autumn register of voters is created 20 September 

Log on to the electronic election system «Valgweb» to check how you are recorded. You do not need to do anything if you are correctly recorded where you wish to vote.

Request a correction of the register of voters #

If you are incorrectly recorded in the register of voters you may send a correction request (also called a complaint) via Valgweb. The deadline for complaints is:

  • 6 March in the spring semester (or on the first following workday)
  • 4 October in the autumn semester (or on the first following workday).

Correction requests sent after the deadline will not be result in a correction unless there is a system error that affects many voters. Complaints concerning staff are handled by the HR Division while complaints concerning students are handled by the Academic Administrative Division. In cases with an element of doubt, the Faculties are consulted while cases of interpretation are decided by the Election Board.

Staff voting rights and constituencies #

Your voting rights and constituency is determined by your affiliation to NTNU when the register of voters is issued.

The register of voters for staff is based on the employment group and organizational unit you are registered with in NTNU’s payroll system (PAGA).

If you wish to vote at a particular Department and its Faculty, it is important that you are recorded with the correct department affiliation in the register of voters.

  • Permanent and temporary academic staff must be employed in a position with a full-time equivalency of at least 50 % in order to have the right to vote.
  • Students who are employed with a full-time equivalency of at least 50 % position vote as staff.
  • A professor or associate professor in at least 20 % position at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences has the right to vote in local elections.

These and other regulations about voting rights can be found in the Regulations for election § 3. 

Student voting rights and constituencies #

Your voting rights and constituency is determined by your affiliation to NTNU when the register of voters is issued.

Automatic registration of constituency #

All students who have been admitted to a course or specific programme of study at NTNU have the right to vote. Their constituency is automatically recorded with the department or faculty who is responsible for their programme of study, secondary where they take the most courses that semester. Those who are registered for programmes of study and courses at several faculties and departments can choose where they wish to exercise their right to vote. You may, however, only exercise your right to vote in one constituency.

Record your constituency when you register for the semester #

Students are encouraged to record their constituency when they register for the semester in Student Web. In Student Web you may choose your constituency under «registrations» in the left menu.

You should in any case check that you are correctly listed in the register of voters. In case you are incorrectly registered, you must send your complaint within the deadline via the election system. Changes in the Student Web will not be transferred to the election system once the register of voters is issued.
