Quiz the candidates

As with previous years, we are asking members of the profession to submit a question for this year's VN Council candidates. Each candidate can then choose to produce a video in which they answer 2 questions submitted by the profession.

The deadline for submitting these questions is Friday, 28 February. Please note that questions that are inappropriate, offensive, misleading or libellous of individuals or organisations will not be forwarded on to any of the candidates. 

Veterinary nurses should email their question to vnvote20@rcvs.org.uk or tweet to the College’s Twitter account using the hashtag #vnvote20

 

How to vote

Voting is due to open on the week commencing 16 March when Civica Election Services (formerly Electoral Reform Services), which runs the election on our behalf, will post ballot papers to all veterinary nurses eligible to vote, in addition to sending an email to each eligible voter with a secure link to a unique voting website.

All votes, whether postal or online, must be cast by 5pm on Friday, 24 April 2020.

Please note: Under the RCVS Election Scheme which governs the VN Council election, as approved by the Privy Council, the RCVS Registrar shall not be required to circulate an election statement which they consider to be defamatory (or otherwise unlawful), or factually misleading and may, when the statement cannot be agreed with the candidate, either edit the election statement or decide not to circulate it.
