Engineers Australia internet voting ballot could be declared invalid after a revolt by members.
More than 300 members, the number required to force a new vote, have supported calls for a new ballot requisition nine months after the online poll took place. The requisition is expected to be delivered to Engineers Australia within days.
The association, which has 90,000 members, will then have to inform the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, which will then advise the Office of the Governor-General, who is the Engineers Australia patron.
On November 16, Engineers Australia conducted a ballot seeking changes to its royal charter and bylaws. It used electronic voting for the first time as well as traditional paper-based postal votes. But scrutineers said they had been unable to verify the e-voting results. --->>>
