Rank and file police officers across England and Wales began voting for their force’s Police Federation Workplace Representatives today.
Workplace reps undertake their Federation duties alongside their role as a police officer, supporting and advising members on matters such as conduct, pay, allowances, terms and conditions, equality, professional development and operational policing issues.
Any Police Federation member, subscribing or non-subscribing, is eligible to vote for their local reps. For the first time, our election process is being administered electronically giving more members than ever the opportunity to have their say.
Information on how to vote and each member's personal Unique Voting Code (UVC) is currently being sent directly to their PNN email addresses, with distribution scheduled to complete by tomorrow morning. Using their UVC, members can log on and vote via www.mi-vote.com.
There are some Branches where the number of reps standing for election is below the allocation for that force, therefore voting is not required - these forces are Cambridgeshire, City of London, Durham, Essex, Lancashire, Norfolk, Northamptonshire, Suffolk and Surrey.
The closing date for voting in all forces (excluding the Met) is 11.59pm on Wednesday 21 March. Due to their size, the Metropolitan Branch have an additional election round, so voting began earlier (on 22 February) and will close on 14 March.
Find out more about the voting process and the elections timetable on our elections page.
If you are a member and you have any questions about the elections, please contact your local Branch.
