Online Voting References

While Rockend encourages every customer to make their own investigations into the requirements of their legislation with regards to online voting, we have also compiled a list of references and recommendations from experts across Australia and New Zealand to highlight the information relevant to Pre-meeting Electronic Voting for each region.

Where legislation exists for a particular region, the links to official publications and resources will also be listed.

New Zealand

The Unit Titles Act 2010 does not currently permit pre-meeting electronic voting. Therefore, we do not recommend our New Zealand clients use the pre-meeting electronic voting technology available in STRATA Master. If the Unit Titles Act 2010 is amended in the future to allow for electronic voting, we will update this information to inform our New Zealand clients accordingly.

Australian Capital Territory

Information on online voting in ACT will be updated shortly.
