The process for registering to vote is quick and easy.

NOTE: All votes cast at the GM are completely anonymous.

Registering to vote electronically

To register, you need to access your General Meetings page. Once there, you can choose the organisation(s) you will represent. Members who have registered to vote will receive an email from the BigPulse voting system prior to the GM.

The deadline to register for electronic voting is 28 October 2020 at 16:00 Amsterdam local time (UTC+1).

Casting your vote at the GM
