Who is eligible to vote?
Any officer who is a member of the Police Federation (subscribing or non-subscribing) can vote.
How does Workplace Representative voting work?
When a voting period opens in which a member can take part, they are sent an email containing a Unique Voting Code (UVC); these are personal to each member and must not be shared. Members use their UVC to log in to www.mi-vote.com to cast their vote.
Once members log in, they are given information to help them select the right constituency to vote in. They are then given a number of votes to select their preferred candidates – they must vote for at least one candidate but they can chose more (the number of votes each member has is calculated according to a formula for that constituency).
Please note, not all constituencies have contested seats therefore members may not have the opportunity to vote if there is only one candidate in their constituency. Contact your Branch if you have further questions.
From 23 March, Met Elected Representatives will be given the opportunity to stand for their Branch Council. From 3 April, Branch Council members from the other 42 forces will be given the opportunity to stand to be a member of their Branch Board.
More opportunities for members to have their say
Members can vote for their force's Branch Chair between 14-30 May and for the National Chair of the organisation in July. We will send members an email with a link to the voting site and further instructions at the appropriate time.
Didn't get your UVC?
We are aware that some force email clients can block our emails. If you are a member and did not receive your voting code within 24 hours of your voting period opening, please contact your Branch to request your UVC.
If you have any further questions about the election process, please contact your local Branch.
