How to vote

  • Voting is being administered on RLSS UK’s behalf by the independent Electoral Reform Services (ERS).
  • On Wednesday 6 June 2018, the ERS will email all RLSS UK individual members (16-years-old and over) with the ERS weblink and prepopulated security code. This email will come from [email protected]

If you have any questions about the voting process, please email: [email protected] or call Andrea Roberts on 0300 3230 096.

Voting documents that are shared on the ERS website are also available here to refer to after you have placed your vote. The accounts being presented for 2017 for RLSS UK are currently unsigned by the independent auditors. This is due to some outstanding information and documentation that needs to be provided to the auditors. Full information will be provided at the RLSS UK Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Saturday 30 June 2018. The accounts will be signed on 30 August 2018 and will be emailed to all members no later than 7 September 2018.

Please read the RLSS UK Annual Report, the 2017 AGM minutes and Appendix 1 before casting your vote.

Voting results will be announced on Saturday 30 June (at RLSS UK’s AGM within our annual conference programme and on RLSS UK’s social media shortly after the AGM).

This is your chance to have your say – please do use your vote.
