National Election Rules & Procedures
The election rules are defined in the DA Germany Bylaws and the DA Germany National Election Rules. National-level elections are facilitated by a neutral, three-member Nominations and Election Subcommittee (NES) of the DA Germany ExCom. No members of the NES were seeking national-level office themselves.
If you have any questions, please send to the 2021 Nominations and Elections Subcommittee at [email protected].
DA rules state that our Chair and Vice Chair must be different genders, and no gender can make up more than half plus one of the full delegation of DPCA Voting Reps. We've asked candidates their gender and have included it for candidates for the relevant positions: (m) male, (f) female, (n) non-binary.
You can see Candidate Statements and Endorsements on our National Candidates page.
