Election for dummies

To participate in election activities you first have to become a student union member. As a student union member you are at the core of HHGS activities. It is the student union members that decide what HHGS should be like. Just like how the parliamentary elections can affect how Sweden is led, you in the student union elections can influence how the student union should be led. HHGS addresses the needs of the members with a focus on education, social activities and contact with the industry, among others.
