Annual report 2019 Dutch Electoral Council

In 2019 six different elections were held. These concerned the elections to the Provincial Councils, the Water Boards, the Island Councils of Bonaire and Saba and the Electoral Colleges for the Senate on Bonaire, Saba and Sint Eustatius, as well as the Senate and European Parliamentary elections. According to the chair of the electoral council Jan Kees Wiebenga this was an extraordinarily intensive period, during which many tens of thousands of persons involved put their heart and soul into making each election a success.
