Sporting Shooter - - Shooting News -

Vot­ing is now open in the 2017 BASC coun­cil elec­tion. Bal­lot pa­pers have been sent out to all BASC mem­bers with the March/April edi­tion of Shoot­ing & Con­ser­va­tion mag­a­zine, and BASC mem­bers can now vote on­line at www.basc.org.uk

There are two can­di­dates con­test­ing one Na­tional seat, and two can­di­dates con­test­ing the one Welsh seat; the one can­di­date nom­i­nated for the Scot­tish seat is un­op­posed.

BASC chair­man Peter Glenser said: “This is your chance to have your say on who helps shape the fu­ture of BASC. I would urge all BASC mem­bers to take the opportunity to cast their vote and make their voice heard.”

BASC’s act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive, Christo­pher Graf­fius said: “BASC is an or­gan­i­sa­tion owned by the mem­ber­ship, and we are very proud of the demo­cratic and mu­tual na­ture of the as­so­ci­a­tion. I urge ev­ery mem­ber to take the time to vote for rep­re­sen­ta­tives on Coun­cil who can take the as­so­ci­a­tion for­wards. Look­ing to the fu­ture, mem­bers’ votes to­day will have an im­pact on the health of shoot­ing to­mor­row.”

The dead­line for vot­ing is 10.30am on Wed­nes­day 7 June 2017.
