Good afternoon Dale
Thank you for your comments. The ballot format and instructions is consistent with last years. The vote will be independently scrutineered by Ernst and Young as they do at every contested election. The auditors will refer to the instructions which state in the document Section 3 – Ballot to Elect Directors, “To the right of each candidate’s name are three boxes, for against and abstain. To vote you must either mark one of the three boxes to the right of the candidate’s name or else perforate the ballot paper within that box.” As there are four positions and five candidates you must only vote for four candidates on the ballot paper. A voting clarification letter will not be circulated to members as we have already received votes from a number members. The members have the opportunity to check their understanding of the voting instructions with the Company Secretary’s office on (03) 9864 9684 or firstname.lastname@example.org
, to date with the exception of your comment I have received no similar inquiry. I will take your comments into consideration for next year’s instructions.
