Queue for TU Aula polling station

Queue for TU Aula polling station


During the elections to the House of Representatives, voting can take place at around forty locations in Delft. Special locations include the Oude Kerk and the Nieuwe Kerk. According to Twitter users, the latter is particularly popular, with long queues forming on a regular basis. Voters also regularly had to wait for their turn at the only polling station on the campus, the TU Aula.


To reduce the risk of corona spreading on election day, the municipality of Delft took various measures. In the polling stations it is mandatory to disinfect the hands, keep a distance of one and a half meters and wear a mouth mask. Voters also get their own voting pencil and there are fewer and different polling stations than four years ago.


School buildings, for instance, are currently less suitable as polling stations. Theatre de Veste and student association Virgiel, locations that have to remain closed due to the lockdown, offer a solution.
