Proxy voting by email

 

Article 16 (a) says that proxy voting may be "where permitted, by means of electronic communication as instructed on the proxy form." There are no instructions on the current proxy form about voting by email and nothing anywhere to say that it is permitted - but neither is it forbidden. My natural inclination is that what is not expressly forbidden is impliedly permitted.

 

What is clear is that the proxy form must be signed and must show a membership number. I think ‘signed’ must mean signed by hand and not signed electronically, bearing in mind that all proxy forms are carefully checked in the LAA office.

 

I think the most sensible pragmatic answer is that I will accept an emailed legible scan of a properly signed and numbered proxy form. However it has been noticed that scans emailed at low resolution can be almost illegible when they are received in the LAA office, so the wisest course maybe to post the paper form.
