Vounteers helping Trust's election process

The Election Working Group (EWG) is a group of Supporters Trust members who have volunteered to have the responsibility of organizing the election and monitoring that the whole process from start to finish is in accordance with the York City Supporters Trust Rules and Election Policy.

The members of this group are:

Stan Collins (Trust Secretary)
Dave Potter
Carol Abel
Laurence Kay
David Hall
Wendy Dawson
Martin Millburn

A timetable has been produced, that details which tasks are required and the date by which they must be completed.

The first major task has been to send details of the nomination procedure to all Trust Members by October 11th. As a first step, about 500 were distributed to Trust members at Bootham Crescent on Saturday 4th October, before and after the match against Cambridge United. The rest of the letters were packed into envelopes in a marathon four hour session by the EWG and very welcome volunteers. Some were delivered locally and the majority posted.

Handing out the letters at Bootham Crescent proved a worthwhile effort as it also enabled us to check that addresses are up to date.

One disappointing aspect however, was the number of supporters who were not members of the Supporters Trust. Trust membership is still available for only 10 (running to 30 June 2004).

The closing date for nominations is Friday 31st. October.

Polling for the election is to be run by the Electoral Reform Society (ERS), an independent service provider. The EWG will forward nominations received to the ERS who will then send out the voting forms and information to all Trust members. After the closing date for voting, the ERS will send the results to the EWG.

These results, as determined by the ERS are deemed to be final.

Only current full members of the York City Supporters Trust on 30th September 2003 will be eligible to stand for election, vote in the elections, or attend the AGM. There were 1,950 such members.

The results of the election will be announced at The AGM, to be held in the Grand Opera House on the evening of December 17th.
