Notice to NSW Branch Members

Roll of Eligible Voters

The registered rules of the United Voice make extensive provision for the compilation of the roll of voters in the forthcoming vacancy election in the Leisure and Tourism Division and the Community and Property Services Division.  The Branch Secretary is required to compile and certify an electoral roll which contains the names and addresses of all members who are entitled to a vote in accordance with the rules. The roll so certified is supplied to the Australian Electoral Commission which will conduct the election. 

Rule 41 of the registered rules of the United Voice sets out the basis upon which members are eligible to be included on the roll and therefore entitled to vote.  The rule is designed to maximise the opportunities for members to be included on the roll and to vote.

The rule also obliges the Branch Secretary to write to all employers who administer payroll deduction schemes to ensure that all payroll deductions are remitted to the United Voice branch office.

Any member who believes that he or she should be or should have been included on the roll and who is not on the roll may complain to the Secretary.  A decision of the Branch Secretary adverse to the members may be appealed to a special disputes committee established for that purpose under the rules.

Members wishing to consult the actual rule are advised to read Rule 41 of the registered rules.  A full copy of this rule is available from your local United Voice branch office upon request.
