Council elections 2022

Voting has now closed. The successful candidates will be announced on Monday 4 July. 


Our Council is elected by a postal ballot of all members held under the single transferable vote system (STV). 

The CSP Council elections are administered by Civica Election Services Limited. They act as independent scrutineers of the nomination and ballot process as required for trade union ballots, which is set out in the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 (TULRCA).

Trade unions are required by law to run postal ballots for all statutory ballots and elections at no personal cost to members. Online voting cannot be facilitated. 

We understand members' frustration with postal ballots. The process is expensive, time-consuming and limits member participation. We continue to lobby the government for change where possible but in the meantime, we have to comply with the law and run elections in this way. 

Declaration of results

Results of the election will be announced to members on Monday 4 July 2022.
