You can also vote in the AK election if you are not an Austrian citizen. You just have to have been a member of the AK on the cut-off date, January 3, 2024. LINKS is only running in Vienna. Therefore, you must be a member of AK Vienna to vote for LINKS.

Am I a member of AK Vienna?
Yes, if you receive the AK Vienna magazine every month, you are a member of AK Vienna.

However, you may not receive the magazine and still be an AK member (perhaps because the AK does not know your current address or you were mean to your mail carrier).

In principle, all employees are AK members. This explicitly includes

  • the unemployed
  • Public servants
  • Employees of all public corporations
  • Presidents & executives of interest groups, if the occupational group represented belongs to the AK
  • Employees of cooperatives in agriculture and forestry with 5 or more employees
  • Home workers
  • Freelance employees (also marginally employed)

If you are marginally employed, an apprentice, on parental leave, in civil or military service or have been unemployed for less than 12 months, you must be entered in the voters’ register. The best way to do this is to contact the AK election office on +43 1 501 65 0!

There are some exceptions for professional groups that are not members. If you are still not sure whether you are a member of AK Vienna, you can also simply call the AK election office and ask: +43 1 501 65 0.
