Special votes

The E tū Union Rules allow special votes to be held for any ballot conducted at the Union’s Biennial Membership Meetings. A special vote means that you can vote without attending the meeting, but are only issued if:

  • The member has a disability that prevents him/her from fully participating in the meeting; or
  • The member is so ill or infirm that attendance at the meeting is not possible; or
  • The member lives outside a 32 kilometre radius from the meeting place; or
  • The member’s employer requires the member to work at the time of the meeting

Any applications for special votes must be made at least 14 days before the day of the first in the series of Biennial Membership Meetings.
