TRIENNIAL LOCAL ELECTIONS

In accordance with the NZPFU Rules, Members are informed that an election for the Christchurch Local President and Vice President positions shall be conducted by electronic voting.

As there are common nominees for both elections, the elections will be held separately:

  • The election for the position of Local President shall be held by electronic voting commencing at 0900 hours on 21 June and closing at 1700 hours on 5 July 2022.
  • The election for the position of Local Vice President shall be held by electronic voting commencing at 0900 hours on 12 July and closing at 1700 hours on 29 July 2022.

Only Christchurch  financial members are entitled to vote.

A dedicated electronic secure voting platform has been established. Voting is anonymous meaning that the confidentiality of any vote is maintained. FAQs on the use of the technology adopted by the NZPFU is available here.

The process for voting is as follows:

  • Christchurch  Local members will receive a secure invitation to their personal email address. If no private email was provided to the NZPFU the secure invitation will be sent to their FENZ email address. The sender’s name is NZPFU and the email will originate from bigpulse.com.

  • If a biography has been provided you can view a candidate's biography by clicking on the candidate’s name.
  • Select one checkbox by clicking the checkbox against a candidate’s name.
