Record hight voter turnout - View the new board

There was a drastic increase in the turnout in the election for the fiscal year 22/23. 880 of the members of Linnekåren voted, which is equivalent to 21%. It should be compared to last year's 16% and only 9% five years ago. 

- The fact that we once again set a record in voting turnout shows that we have committed members who really want to influence and make a change. It makes a big difference and I am sure that the newly elected board will use the trust it has received to work for a better study time for all students, says Anton Jakobsson, current president of the Linnaeus Union.

Here you can see the new board that will be presented at the members' meeting on May 31:
