Vote at our online SGM and/or Members' Meeting on the day

On Friday 10 December 2021 you’ll be able to watch the online Meeting relevant to the vote you’d like to cast. Most of our members will be able to attend and vote at both the SGM (Vote 1) and the Members’ Meeting (Vote 2). Our newest LV= members will only be able to vote at the Members’ Meeting but they can attend and observe the SGM if they’d like to.

All you need to do is click on the ‘Online Meeting’ button below on the day. You’ll be able to log in up to 30 minutes before the SGM and the voting portal will remain open until the end of the Members’ Meeting.

Please log in using your two unique security codes and Meeting Code which can be found on the front of, and within, your letter. If you have lost your codes please email [email protected] by 2pm Wednesday 8 December.


In advance of the SGM and Members' Meetings you can choose to vote via our voting portal or by post  

Voting portal

You can use our voting portal, in advance of the Meeting relevant to the vote you’d like to cast, to have your say. Please click on the ‘Vote now’ button below. You’ll be directed to the portal where you’ll need to log in by entering your two unique security codes which can be found within your letter. Once you’ve logged in simply follow the onscreen instructions to cast the vote.

If you’d like to appoint a proxy other than the Chair of the Meeting to vote on your behalf, you’ll be able to do this once you’ve logged in to our voting portal. You can find more information about the proxy process below.

By post

To cast your vote by post simply fill in the proxy voting form attached to your letter and send it back to us in the envelope provided. There is no need for a stamp unless you are returning the form from outside the UK.

For members eligible to cast a vote for Vote 1 and Vote 2, we would encourage you to return both of your proxy voting forms. However, if you prefer you can choose to just return one, for either Vote 1 or Vote 2.
