Internet voting allows you to vote anywhere and at anytime of day during the voting period by using any internet-connected device such as a cell phone, tablet, personal computer, laptop or voting kiosk. To vote using the Internet Voting System you must have either a valid cellular phone number or valid email address that is registered on the EPPF member database as at 31 October 2019. Prior to the start of the voting phase on 2 January 2020, you will receive via your email and/or SMS a full Internet Voting Guide containing the following:
a. An Internet Voting System Unique Access Key. Please note that this is different from your pensioner number/unique number and is a personalised number intended to give you unique access to the Internet Voting System. You, therefore, MUST NEVER share your Internet Unique Access Key with anyone.
b. A link to the Internet Voting System
