Recently, the PSA has trialled on-line voting in other elections. We would like to hear from women members about whether on-line voting should be extended to the elections for the Women’s Council Committee also.

Benefits of on-line voting

  • On-line voting has increased the overall participation rate in the elections where it has been used
  • It is convenient (you can vote from a computer at work, at home or even on your smart phone) anywhere, anytime
  • It is secure and automatically limits each member to one vote
  • It saves members’ money. Traditional paper based voting costs more per member (and is likely to increase in line with postage costs).
  • It saves staff time as no processing or manual counting is needed. This time can be put to better use assisting members.
  • Results are available almost immediately following the close of the ballot.

Have your say. Voting is open until Wednesday 27 January 2016.
