The Electoral Commission are finalising the last few items in preparation for the Elections next Sunday. Yesterday’s Taboot and Jaloos procession provided a litmus test of how remote drive thru sessions occur at our beloved centre. On behalf of the Electoral Commission we thank the CPV members, logistic team and those who assisted on the day in providing this service in honour of Imam Hussain (a.s). As mentioned previously, the elections shall be contactless and in-person only, we aim to provide an efficient service that shall be amenable to all. It is for the service of our community that these elections are been meticulously planned to ensure maximum participation from all members on the day. 

Please see our guidance below: 

– Priority Access Between 10:30am – 12pm for the elderly (70+),  members with disabilities and those with health vulnerabilities will be given first chance to vote. We strongly advise others more able to come after 1pm. 

– All members should come with photo ID, these include but are not limited to: (Passports, Driving Licenses, Student ID Cards, Photo Senior Citizenship Cards).

– Under no circumstance shall members leave their vehicles.

– You will be provided ballot papers, these are to be completed in your cars and dropped into the designated boxes indicated.
