The election for NIPSA’s General Council for 2019/20 will be held between 5 February 2019 and 26 February 2019. Individual ballot papers will be issued directly to all members by the Independent Scrutineer who is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the election. If ballot papers are delivered to union rooms the branch must make every effort to have them distributed directly to members. If the member is not traceable or on long-term sick leave the ballot paper must be returned to the Independent Scrutineer (address on envelope).

Every member should exercise their right to vote in this important election.

An election poster is available to download from the link at the bottom of this page. I would ask you to download and distribute prominently within your Branch. If you would like print copies please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (telephone 028 9066 1831).

If any member does not receive a voting paper by 12 February 2019 he or she should contactThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (telephone: 028 9066 1831) For any other queries on the election members should be advised to contact the Independent Scrutineer directly at:

Electoral Reform Services 33 Clarendon Road London N8 0NW (telephone: 020 8365 8909)

Completed ballot papers should be returned in the pre-paid reply envelope provided. It will be noted that the pre-paid reply envelope has a different postcode to the address above; this takes account of Electoral Reform Services’ arrangements with Royal Mail for mail receipts.

However if any member loses the pre-paid envelope, the ballot paper can be posted directly to the above address.

It should also be noted that the only official documents issued by NIPSA for this election are the ballot paper with the related instructions plus the publication containing a list showing each candidate’s gender, grade and branch and the Election Addresses submitted.
