    vote - continuation 1

    Hello all users!

    Yesterday you helped me to convey the thought that on such and such a day there was a vote to elect a new member for the Supervisory Board. I would like to add as follows:

    The following three candidates applied for the post.
    or
    The following three candidates took part/participated in the vote.

    Do you think it makes sense?

    Thank you.

    If you take part in a vote, you are not (usually) a candidate -- you are voting for a candidate.
