MoveUP Election – Important Updates on Voting
August 6, 2021
To: All MoveUP Members
Every three years elections are held to fill the positions of President, Secretary-Treasurer, and Executive Board members. The current term will expire this fall, so preparations are underway for the upcoming elections. As in the past, the elections will be conducted electronically through the Member Portal and will take place from August 9 to 30, 2021. If you have not used the Member Portal before, you just need to activate your account before you can vote.
Do you already use the Member Portal?
That is great. We encourage you to login and ensure your information is up to date (including contact details, employer, and workplace location). That is all you need to do, and you are ready to vote.
Never used the Member Portal?
To activate your Member Portal profile, you will need your member ID number. Your member ID is included in your welcome letter when you first joined MoveUP. It was either emailed to your personal email address or, if your email is not in our records, sent by hardcopy to your home mailing address. You can find the instructions to create a Member Portal profile here.
The Member Portal is a vital hub that gives you access to all the important tools you need as a MoveUP member. It is where you can find information on your membership, including active cases or grievances, as well as where you vote in elections or to ratification votes.
If you are having difficulty signing in to the Member Portal, are unable to activate your account on the Member Portal, or if you have lost your member number, please email email@example.com and they will assist you.
How to Vote
To vote, simply log in to the Member Portal anytime between August 9 to 30, 2021. Voting will end at 4:30 p.m. on August 30, 2021 sharp. Once you have logged in to the Member Portal you will see the option to vote on the screen.
When you are ready to vote, all you need is a computer with Internet access. This can be a computer at home, at your neighbour’s place, or at a local library. The voting is done online through a web browser so you won’t need any special software or to download anything.
When will we know the results of the election?
The results of the vote will be announced once the Returning Officer has been able to verify the results.
