As with last year all of the election processes will be run through the SSAGO website. You can access the elections page of the website here:

If you wish to run for any of the National Exec positions, you must nominate yourself online, supplying your manifesto, nominator and seconder. Nominations will be published on the 14th of February and will be printed and made publicly available for people to view and browse at Rally. Late nominations can still be submitted up to the 17th of February at 1pm.

If you wish to submit an event bid for any of the upcoming national events, these are also submitted online. You must provide a description of your event, those responsible for it and a seconder from another club to second your event. Bids are open for Spring, Summer and Autumn Rally, Ball and Witan.

As with last year, people not attending the AGM in person will be able to register to vote online and have their say. Registration to vote must be completed in advance of the 14th of February, and those attending will not be able to vote online.
