Please read this important advice concerning the timetable for the elections for Executive.

Australian Education Union - ACT Branch 2015 Election of General Membership Representatives:
Important Notice Regarding Extension Of Ballot Timetable

On 7 May 2015 ballot material was posted to all eligible voters for this election. The ballot closed at 10am on Thursday 28 May 2015. However, due to some anomalies in the roll of voters, involving the inadvertent omission of some eligible new members, the Returning Officer appointed by the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) to conduct the above election has decided to extend the ballot period to provide those affected members with the opportunity to vote.

The ballot extension applies only to those members who were omitted from the original roll of voters.  Ballot material will be posted to the affected members on 29 May 2015. This ballot material must be returned to the Returning Officer in the envelopes provided by 10.00am on Friday 19 June 2015.

The current ballot has closed as scheduled on 10.00am on Thursday 28 May 2015 for all other members.

All ballot material returned has been placed in a ballot box and sealed. The ballot box will be stored securely and remain sealed until the counting of votes commences on 19 June 2015.

If you have any queries regarding the above, please contact the Returning Officer on 02 9375 6395.

Please note: the ballot is being extended only for those people who were excluded from original roll due to an administrative error. This group of members have been emailed directly with relevant information.
