As a member of the Connect Community you can register to vote in the elections for RNIB Trustees.

Up to 50 per cent of the Trustees on the RNIB Board are elected by the Connect Community. The process of electing Trustees to fill vacancies on the Board will be under way soon.

In order to take part in these elections you need to be registered as a voter.

To do this or if you are unsure if you can already vote, just follow these simple steps:

  1. Email RNIB at [email protected] or call 0303 1234 555
  2. Provide your name and that you wish to be registered to vote.
  3. You need to do this by 31 March 2019.

You are eligible to vote if you are:

  • a Connect member
  • aged 16 or over
  • self-certified blind or partially sighted and live in the UK or Isle of Man
  • not employed by RNIB.
