Eligibility to Vote

Members are entitled to vote if they: hold a current certificate of registration in Ontario; are not in default of payment of fees; and work or reside in the electoral district where the election is being held.

Voting

No less than thirty days prior to the election, every member of CASLPO who is eligible to vote in the district where an election is being held will receive electronically, a list of candidates and biographies, a ballot (including electronic voting procedures and the deadline for receipt of ballots), and guidance on how to submit the completed ballot. The electronic voting email will be sent to you from an outsourced vendor called ‘Big-Pulse’.  They specialize in secure, protected e-Voting needs.  The email ‘From’ line will appear as if the message is being sent from the CASLPO Registrar, Brian O’Riordan and will include a subject line notifying members of the Election.  We hope you will cast your ballot in elections.  Your vote strengthens the principle of self-regulation of the health professions in Ontario and fosters our right of professional representation on the Council of your College.

IMPORTANT:  To receive your voting instructions, the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario must have your unique email address on record.  If you share an email address with others, your personal voting instructions will not be confidential.  You can update your email address in the member portal.
