The voting at the Student Union Council Elections ended on Wednesday 8 November at 16.00. Almost 6000 students voted. TYY elected new Student Union Council for 2018-2019.

Student Union Council’s 41 members are the highest decision-making power in the Student Union. The Council was elected for two-year term.

Voting took place electronically from 1 to 8 November. There was no separate advance voting time. A total of 5988 students participated in the voting and the voter turnout was 41.98 %. The turnout rose from the previous elections in 2015 and is the highest in TYY for 37 years.

"We got higher turnout and more candidates than last time. The election was also pure, we did not have to deal with any violation of ethical rules. I can only be happy that the election went very well. We have done our best and we can be proud of the result", says Tuomas Dahlström, Chair of TYY's Central Election Committee.

A total of 360 students from 13 different electoral coalitions were nominated as candidates. The total number of candidates was the highest in all student union elections held in Finland in 2017.
