Problems with NEC elections
I have picked up that a number of people have so far not received their ballot papers / online access details for the NEC ballot. As a matter of urgency I have been in touch with NEC members and informed them of the situation.
Ann Black pointed out:
The ballot papers for the election of six constituency representatives (and two from local government) should start arriving from Monday 11 July. Members should receive email notification by Friday 15 July and hard copy packs by Friday 22 July. The deadline for voting is Friday 5 August.
If nothing has arrived by Wednesday 27 July please call the membership team on 0044 (0)345 092 2299.
I will be calling the Party today informing them that many in our CLP have not received emails and update this page with any new information. I would however suggest you also give them a ring.
UPDATE 20 JULY:
I have called Labour Party HQ today and was informed that the Electoral Reform Services have experienced problems. I was advised any members who have not received their email should either send an email to
0044 (0)345 092 2299
so that the ballot is reissued / email sent out again.
I made abundantly clear that the level of communication from the Party was extremely poor and such information should be displayed on the website.
I will be informing NEC members of this too.
UPDATE 21 JULY:
I followed up and the complaint has been forwarded to the Electoral Reform Services. They expect last batches to be sent out today/tomorrow. Lorraine will also be following up on this and further updates will appear here.
UPDATE 22 JULY:
Lorraine and me have been in touch and now supposedly emails / post will be sent out by the middle / end of next week. We have made our dissatisfaction clear and next update will follow on Wednesday.
