Voting in this year’s Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Council and Veterinary Nurses (VN) Council elections has now opened, and veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses who are eligible to vote in their respective elections can do so either online or by post.
The elections are run by Electoral Reform Services (ERS) Ltd, and feature both a new voting platform and regular, personalised email reminders from ERS that will make it easier to vote online.
Voting for both of this year’s elections opened on Friday 24 March with an email sent to all those eligible to vote for whom the College holds an email address.
Ballot papers have also been dispatched to all eligible voters along with booklets containing the candidates’ biographies, contact details and manifestos.
Instructions on how to vote online and by post are included with the ballot papers.
There are 16 candidates contesting six places on RCVS Council, including three existing Council members eligible for re-election and 13 candidates not currently on Council.
