On Monday, 14th August 2023, information about the FSSB’s election relating to specific members was posted online to an anonymous Twitter account. Issues relating to these individuals had already been identified and were being dealt with as part of establishing the electoral roll for the election. The post represents a breach in the process that needs to be investigated further. It also calls into question the integrity of the election and any result that would have been declared.

Consequently, Mi-Voice is temporarily suspending the elections process, pending an internal investigation by the Society into how the leak occurred. We also recommend the creation of a new, single, verified database of members to ensure the legitimacy of any future election.
