Ballot Instructions

The ballot to select delegates has two parts.

Part 1: The first part of the ballot lists the names of the leadership contestant(s) and an independent option. A member must vote for a leadership candidate or choose the independent option. In each constituency the results of this vote will determine the number of delegates the candidate(s) slate(s) and independent will be allocated.

Part 2: The second part of the ballot lists the delegate candidates. Delegate candidates will be listed in ranked order along with the name of the candidate they support. Independent delegate candidates will be listed in alphabetical order.

Each voter will have two options when selecting delegates.

A voter can either:
a) Choose to support the slate of delegates for the leadership candidate they support; or
b) Choose to select delegates individually. The voter may select any number of delegates candidates up to the number allocated to that constituency.

For each leadership candidate and the independent option, delegates will be selected according to the number of votes received.

In the event of a tie within a slate, delegates will be selected by the ranking submitted by campaigns. Ties for independent delegates will be determined by drawing lots.
