Make your vote count in the 2017 RACT Board Election by informing yourself of the process below, familiarising yourself with the candidates and casting your vote before the ballot deadline on the 13 November 2017.
All online votes are registered via a secure website operated by the Australian Election Company and how you voted will remain entirely confidential.
In order to vote online you will need your membership number along with a unique voting code that you have been assigned.
Your member number can be located on the front of your RACT membership card. It is a 7-digit number, however for the purposes of the voting website please ignore any leading zeros that are included in the number. For example member number '0000001' should just enter '1'.
Unique voting codes have been provided on the reverse of the flysheet that accompanied the October/November edition of Journeys magazine or for members who do not receive the magazine via a separate letter. In addition for eligible members who have provided their email details an email will be provided during the ballot period.
Please note that if you are a new RACT member, you will not have been assigned a unique voting code immediately on joining, however you will receive your code as soon as it has been assigned. Until that time you can lodge your vote by requesting a postal ballot pack.
If you have misplaced or have not yet received your unique voting code and would like it emailed to you, please email email@example.com with your name and member number and we will send it to you.
Once you have accessed the voting website and entered your member number and unique voting code you will be able to cast your vote. If you make a mistake while casting your vote please click 'clear votes' below the candidates names and start again. Once you are happy with your selection click 'next' and then confirm your selection using the submit button. Once your vote has been submitted it cannot be varied so please check that you have selected your preferred candidates before clicking 'submit' – further details on the candidates can be accessed below.
