When will it be?
The Tottenham Labour Party will be having their Branch Labour Party (BLP) AGMs on Wednesday 6th July 2016 and their Constituency Labour (CLP) AGMs on Wednesday 2
What is the difference between ward and branch?
In Tottenham all branches (BLPs) are based on the ward where you live. Some areas in the UK have branches based on different boundaries. So in Tottenham there is no difference.
Can I choose what branch I belong to?
No, you are automatically assigned to the branch by the ward you live in. You will not be allowed to participate if you turn up to another branch.
What is the difference between a BLP and a CLP?
A BLP (Branch Labour Party) is based on your ward. A CLP (Constituency Labour Party) is based on our Parliamentary constituency.
Can I vote in the CLP elections?
Only if you are a GC delegate elected in your BLP AGM or sent by an affiliated organisation.
I have not received notice about my BLP AGM yet
Notice is due 7 days before the BLP AGM. You should receive notice by 11:59pm on Wednesday 29th June 2016. If you have not, please contact TottenhamLabour@gmail.com as there could be something wrong on our database.
Do you have ID checks?
Yes. Click here to read more
What if I am late?
If you are late you will be unable to participate in a ballot which has already begun, you can vote in the next one. (i.e. if you walk in mid way when they are electing the Chair, you have to wait until that is complete to vote for the next position).
Are children allowed?
Yes. There is no crèche, but you can bring your child/children.
Can I vote by proxy or email?
No, to vote in a BLP or a CLP AGM you have to be present.
I am in arrears, can I still participate?
If you are in arrears you will not be allowed to participate in the AGM.
If I stand for a position will I get training?
Yes. The Labour party regionally and nationally provide free training, including webinars.
I have been nominated for a CLP position and I don't want to do it
When the CLP Secretary receives all of the nominations from branches, she will email those nominated to ask if they accept the nomination. You can of course decline or withdraw.
