Salaamun Alaikum, 

As the forthcoming Elections are nearing (Sunday 6 September 2020). We the Electoral Commission wish to remind all candidates that nomination papers must be received via Electoralcommision@hujjat.org TODAY:

The Electoral Commission has scrupulously deliberated on the method of voting for the forthcoming elections. Extensive consideration for electronic, postal and in-person voting was given including safeguarding measures and suggestions from members of the community. On the balance of risk and probability it has been unanimously agreed that voting shall be contactless and in person. This decision was made to ensure the highest level of safety is afforded to all members in our community whilst maintaining a fair and impartial process. Our team has tirelessly worked to create a safe environment and method that garners confidence and support from all members irrespective of age, health and personal circumstance.

An enhanced guide shall be made available by Monday 24 August 2020 which will provide a visual representation with practical guidance on what shall be required and expected from you on the day.
