Disability Labour recognises the need to improve our voting procedures at AGMs, making them more secure, valid and reliable.
We therefore agree the following should be added to Section L(7) of the constitution:
(7e) When electing executive committee members and officers, each member will be given a ballot, with a unique identifier to enable a full audit trail.
(7d) Those standing for election will cast their ballots first. They will then leave the meeting for the duration of the voting process.
(7f) Ballots cast will be kept secure at all times by independent third parties. They will be counted by being entered onto a database for the purpose. The database will include the unique identifiers to enable member to check that their ballots were counted correctly.
