Following the implementation of the Collins Review reforms last year the Labour Party Leadership and Deputy Leadership election will be conducted on a one member, one vote basis.
Those eligible to vote fall into three categories.
- Ordinary Labour Party members.
- Affiliated Supporters – Members of affiliated Trade Unions and Socialist Societies that can register to be an affiliated supporter for free - support.labour.org.uk
- Labour Party Supporters – Members of the general public who agree to support the values and aims of the party and register by paying £3.
UNISON will be working on recruiting members as affiliated supporters over the coming months. A timetable of the leadership contests can be found here.
The deadline for affiliating is 12 August.
