TRIENNIAL LOCAL ELECTIONS
In accordance with the NZPFU Rules, Members are informed that an election for the Timaru Local Secretary 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 Secretary 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 Timaru 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.
