Voting Online: To vote online, members must login to online banking and click the link ‘Vote for Board of Directors’. Members may choose up to three (3) candidates and the system will only allow the member to vote once. If a member votes online and also on paper in-branch, both ballots will be rejected and no ballots for that member will be counted. Members must ensure they complete all sections of the ballot and click ‘Submit’ on the Confirmation page for their votes to be validated and recorded.
Personal Member Voting In-Branch: Each member may vote only once. A ballot listing the candidates in alphabetical order will be supplied. The member will then proceed to a voting screen and mark an “X” for their choice of up to three (3) candidates. Completed ballots are returned to the ballot box at the registration desk. Ballots that could identify the voter will be declared invalid.
Business Voting: A business may vote only once and must vote in-branch by designating a representative who is not a member, and by written authorization provided to the credit union by way of a Designation of Voter form. Examples of such businesses are:
- Incorporated entities (i.e., Inc., Ltd., LLP)
- Incorporated associations
- Incorporated societies (i.e., Incorporated under the Society Act of BC)
For Unincorporated Associations, the designated representative must be a member.
A copy of the Designation of Voter form naming the person must be signed by the authorized signatory and presented at the time of voting. The Designation of Voter form is available online and from any branch of SASCU Credit Union.
