2018 Elections Voting Regulations
As with other years, the 2018 Elections will be carried out using the Single Transferable Vote system. To learn more about this system click here.
Did you know that a postal vote costs YHA more than three times the cost of an electronic vote? If you have an email address please let us know so that we can use our limited budget wisely.
