Voting day will be Wednesday, January 30, 2019. If a run-off vote is required it will be held on Wednesday, February 6, 2019. At today’s General Membership Meeting the membership approved the implementation of online voting starting with this By-Election. Online voting will be accessible using an encrypted link in the members-only area of the Local 4304 website, only registered members on the Local 4304 website will be able to vote online (please encourage your co-workers to register on the Local 4304 website if they haven’t already done so). Members who cannot vote online will need to present themselves in-person to a polling station. The Local has committed to continuing to provide a minimum of one in-person polling station for all elections, although we will try to have at least two in-person polling stations in this by-election since this is the first time we are using the online voting system.
