Voting guidance

Internet voting has now closed

Our sincere thanks to everyone who took the time to participate

Voting is being conducted by Civica Election Services (CES) on behalf of the Society.

You can vote electronically or by post prior to the AGM.

Your proxy vote will be cast by the Chair of the meeting, or failing them the Company Secretary, in accordance with your wishes indicated on the voting form (whether electronic or paper).

On the voting screen/proxy form you will find three boxes alongside each Resolution. Against each Resolution you should mark an X indicating your choice.

If you leave the instruction on how to vote blank, the proxy holder may vote as he/she wishes. Although provision for a withheld vote (Abstain) does not appear in the Society’s Articles, it is now common. So, if you are assigning your proxy and do not vote “for” or “against”, you can elect to abstain, which is also binding on your proxy holder.

How to cast your vote

Electronic voting

To vote, go to the Cast your Vote web page. You will be asked for your Membership number without the leading zeros as part 1 of your security code and the first four digits of your callsign as part 2 of your security code (e.g. G9ABC enters G9AB or GM9ABC enters GM9A).

CES voting is available 24 hours a day commencing at noon on 15 March 2023. Voting will close at 9am on 13 April 2023.

Postal voting is expensive so please use the internet option if possible.

Postal voting

You can vote by post by requesting a proxy form and envelope from RSGB HQ. You can do this by writing to the General Manager, by email to or by telephone on 01234 832 702. The proxy form and return envelope will be sent to you.

The details required on the proxy form are your name, address, callsign or RS number and your Membership number. This can be found on your RadCom mailing wrapper, by logging into the Membership portal at or by enquiry from RSGB HQ. This is a security measure required by CES. Once you have voted (see below), place the completed proxy form in the pre-paid envelope and post it to CES to arrive on or before 9am on 13 April 2023.
