Voting Procedures

Voting will be primarily conducted online. The voting system is designed to be secure and to protect the confidentiality of members’ votes. It is one that has been used successfully by other Ontario regulatory colleges. This online election process improves efficiency and reduces paper, printing and mailing costs associated with the election.

When voting begins, members will receive an email from BigPulse – a third-party online election vendor contracted by the College – that will provide each member with the opportunity to vote online.

In order to ensure that members may exercise the right to vote, the College encourages members to check both their inbox and spam/junk folders for an email from @bigpulse.com. Members can also add bigpulse.com to their Safe Senders tab in the junk email options of Microsoft Outlook.
