Election news: Nominations deadline√ā¬†extended by one week

Police Federation members still have time to put themselves forward as workplace representatives in the forthcoming elections after the nominations process was extended for one week.

Under the revised election timetable, workplace rep nominations will now close at 11.59pm on Thursday 29 July.

Voting then gets underway at 8am on Thursday 5 August and closes at 11.59pm on Thursday 28 August. The newly elected Branch Councils will then come in post on 1 September.

All subscribing Federation members should have received an email directly to their PNN address (or their selected preferred email address) from the independent third-party electoral service provider, Mi-Voice. 

Members are asked to check their junk mailbox if they cannot see the email from Mi-Voice in their inbox.

The email to subscribing members includes a link to an online nomination form.

Members who wish to stand for election will need to complete the form, which includes confirming that they are eligible to stand and agree to the Standards and Performance Agreement.

Non-subscribing members cannot stand for election but are still entitled to vote. Details of the voting platform will be provided in the coming weeks once the nomination period is over.

Members who want more information about the role or the election process should contact the Federation office.

Elections for Federation reps are held every three years with interim elections being organised if positions become vacant.

The 2018 national elections were the first held under new procedures introduced after the Independent Review of the Police Federation.
