NEC Disabled Rep Candidates survey.
If you find any wrong of broken links, or other issues with this website, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Monday 19 October 2020 the Labour Party NEC will start sending out ballots for this years NEC elections. For the first time ever, members who have told the Party they are disabled people using the Party’s equalities monitoring form sent earlier this year will get to vote in our own Disabled Rep on the NEC.
Balloting closes at noon on Thursday 12 November and results will be announced on Friday 13 November.
Although candidates can be nominated until midnight on Monday 27 September, we wanted to know more about those candidates that have declared they are standing so far. We contacted all candidates who had included their email address as a contact channel on the Party website by 21 August.
Our members worked together to create a survey for the candidates. We sent this, using the Mailchimp email software, to 41 candidates on Friday 21 August. We tracked which candidates had opened our email and sent a follow up directly from our account to those that had not opened the Mailchimp email. We also posted in our Facebook group, to make sure members knew what was happening with the survey as we went along.
All candidates who responded are disabled members of the Party and all committed to actively working to make the handbook internal Party policy.
