To vote by post, you need to be on a Member or Fellow in good standing with the Faculty of Dental Surgery.

After completing the ballot paper you will need to send it back to the Electoral Reform Services in the reply paid envelope provided.
Mark your ballot paper and make sure you send it back so that it arrives by close of poll (which is 5.00pm on Thursday 11th May 2017). If it arrives later than this your vote will not be counted.
Voting electronically is a quick and easy way of voting.
