Will BIJ1 participate in the upcoming elections?
The next elections are the parliamentary elections in 2021, in which we hope to get seats with your help. As in 2018, BIJ1 will again participate in the municipal elections in 2022, and this year not only in Amsterdam. Keep an eye on our social media channels to see when and where you can cast your vote for BIJ1.

Where is BIJ1 locally active?
BIJ1 is a national political party and therefore considers it important to be locally present. BIJ1 is represented with a local department in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Utrecht. BIJ1 is also setting up departments in The Hague, Leeuwarden, Groningen, Leiden, Den Bosch, Eindhoven, Almere, Hilversum and Nijmegen-Arnhem. Is your municipality not listed here? Start your own department! BIJ1 considers it important that all our departments endorse our ideals and core goals. We also invest a lot of time and energy in our (online) communication. We think it is important to show unity in our diversity. Contact Rebekka Timmer (coordinator local departments) about starting a local department and we will support you in this.
I'm already a member of a different party. Can I still join?
Of course! There is no limit to the number of parties you can become a member of.
When are events and am I welcome?
You are very welcome to join one of our events. For example, the departments in Utrecht and Rotterdam regularly organize events for members and non-members, and the Amsterdam group regularly organizes a 'Political Café'. Keep an eye on social media to see when we get together.
How do I contact Sylvana Simons?
I would love to become a member, but I can't afford it. What can I do?
We believe that your financial situation should not stop you from joining. For the people who can't afford to miss € 30 per year with the party membership, a reduced rate can apply. Please contact us to request more information about this.
