Please note that we cancelled the original ballot and re-ran it. These elections are for the term to run from the end of conference until conference 2012.

Ballot papers were originally issued at the end of March. But in the original election booklet, due to technical issues, several valid branch nominations received by the due date were omitted from the list of nominating branches shown for each candidate. This applied to the ballot for the 23 seats on the NEC outside of those reserved for the Connect sector. There was no impact on the separate election for the 5 reserved NEC seats for the Connect sector.

Whilst all nominated candidates had been properly included in the election booklet, the omission of some valid branch nominations was an error that could undermine the legitimacy of the ballot. As Returning Officer, the general secretary concluded that it was necessary to order a rerun of the ballot.

We informed all relevant branches that the original ballot was cancelled and that members should be informed accordingly, and no further votes cast. We produced a revised election booklet which was distributed on Friday 23 April 2010 with a closing date of Friday 21 May 2010.

A circular was sent widely to all branches by bulk email and by post where we do not have email addresses. This was accompanied by a letter from the general secretary. Branch representatives have been asked to cascade this announcement through their local distribution lists.

The revised timetable was:
23 April - new NEC ballot starts
21 May - NEC ballot closes

The original timetable was:
3 March - Deadline for nominations noon
31 March - NEC ballot starts
28 April - NEC ballot closes
