Only fully paid up members will be able to vote, and only those who have already become members 30 days prior to the AGM date.

Voting will be organised in a similar way to last year. Voting members will receive an email from the on-line voting service with links to the on-line ballot for each ballot measure. The election will be carried out under single transferable vote rules (STV). Each foundation member will cast their vote by ranking candidates according to their preference. A maximum of two will be elected.

See voting information and instructions for details.
