AIM label and distributor members are eligible to vote for the candidates that have been nominated. There is one vote per member company (based on corporate group rather than individual labels/imprints).
This year we have introduced online voting to ensure that all member companies across the country can vote, full details of which have been sent to our main contact at each eligible company. Contact email@example.com if you have not received these.
Voting papers will still be distributed on the day, to those who have not voted online, and you can still appoint a Proxy vote if you wish.
