Nominations must be supported by a proposing organisation and a supporting organisation, both of which must be in full membership of Supporters Direct. Email us to check your organisations membership status.
Nomination forms are available upon request from the Secretary at the National Office or by downloading here. Completed nominations must be received in the Supporters Direct National Office by 12 noon on Tuesday May 2nd 2017. The Election Rules Policy, including criteria for candidates, is also available on the Supporters Direct website.
A ballot of members will be conducted if the number of candidates exceeds the number of seats available at the closing date of nominations. For clarification it is intended that the two highest-polling candidates of those nominated by the English & Welsh Football Trusts will be elected to the England & Wales Football seats (the one with the highest votes for 3 years and the second highest for two years) and the two highest-polling candidates nominated by the Scottish Football Trusts will be elected to the Scottish Football seats. In the event that there are less nominations than seats for the Scotland Seats, one of these seats will become a general seat. The General Seats will be filled by the highest-polling candidates not already elected to an England and Wales or Scottish Football seat.
Candidates for General Seats need not be serving on any council.
