Members can now cast their votes in the RCVS council and VN council elections.
Ballot papers for this year’s elections have been sent to all vets and registered or listed vet nurses and votes can now be cast online or by post until 5pm on Friday, April 25, 2014.
Vets can vote for up to six of the 19 RCVS council candidates whose biographies and manifestos are included with their ballot papers. Registered or listed veterinary nurses can vote for up to two of the five candidates standing for VN council this year.
This year the College has, for the first time, set up dedicated election websites to provide election information and candidate details in one place, and to allow vets and vet nurses to cast their votes online. Votes can also be cast by post using the details contained in the ballot papers.
All those standing in the elections have also participated in ‘Quiz the candidates’ this year, answering a selection of questions submitted directly by vets and veterinary nurses. The candidates’ recordings are available to listen again via The Webinar Vet, and on the respective election websites.
Vets who have not received their ballot papers should contact Ian Holloway, communications manager, on 020 7202 0727 or firstname.lastname@example.org; vet nurses missing their ballot papers should contact Annette Amato, deputy head of veterinary nursing, on 020 7202 0713 or email@example.com.
