An election of Officers and Council as well as that of the Committee on Nominations is held every four years, the year of the IUSSP’s general conference. Elections are organized by internet, using secure and independent voting software and controlled by an Election Committee. For all elections and votes, the electoral list will comprise all members in good standing one month before the start of the ballot. Student associates do not vote. 


The rules governing IUSSP elections can be found in article 10 of the IUSSP Constitution and in article 2 of the by-laws.


The most recent election took place from 15 September to 27 October 2021.
