The board elections will not be contested as there are 9 candidates standing and 9 positions available. The board election will thus take the form of an affirmative vote of each candidate in accordance with rule 8.3 of the CST Election policy (noted below).
Elections to the Board of the Chelsea Supporters Trust are uncontested as there are 9 candidates standing for 9 positions. As such, election to the Board shall take place in accordance with Rule 8.3 of the CST Election policy which states:
‘If there are as many or fewer candidates than there are places, an affirmative ballot shall be held at the AGM. Each successfully nominated candidate will be put before the meeting for the approval of members. Any candidate not receiving the support of more than half of those present in person and by proxy shall be deemed to have not been elected. The exception shall be that should the failure to elect any of the validly nominated candidates leave the Board below the minimum required under the Rules for them to act, all validly nominated candidates shall be deemed elected by the EMG and this declared at the AGM.’
The prospective Board Members are as follows (in alphabetical order):
- Cliff Auger
- David Chidgey
- Henry Fowler
- Charles Jackson
- David Johnstone
- Chris Rayburn
- Ramzi Shammas
- Dan Silver
- Richard Weekes

Voting for both the board elections and motions raised at the AGM will take place in the two weeks following the conclusion of the AGM (Sunday 13th August). No voting will take place at the AGM itself. The voting will take place online through SurveyMonkey. On the next working day following the AGM (Monday 14th August 2017), members will receive an email containing a unique link to SurveyMonkey where they will be able to vote in favour or against motions raised at the AGM and elect the new board.
