Important notice regarding the RAC Council Election
The RAC Council Election supplement, which includes a ballot paper for voting, will be delivered to Voting Members over the next few weeks.
Sarah Kepert, a candidate named in the supplement and listed on the ballot paper, has withdrawn from the RAC Council election. The RAC Council Election supplement had been printed before RAC was notified of Ms Kepert’s withdrawal from the election.
The withdrawal of a candidate from the election does not make the ballot informal. However Voting Members please note that any votes cast in favour of Ms Kepert will be disregarded by the Returning Officer in accordance with the RAC’s By-Laws.
