As already said we have temporarily suspended new membership until after the vote expiry. We will be launching with the opportunity for fans to join the Trust and own a share in the CG very soon.

I've still not had an email Jan, just so you know.

I assume there must be others as well.

Hi there, we are investigating this for you and will respond via email asap, we have literally been inundated with questions today so apologies for slow response.

Maybe worth looking at all previous bronze memberships as I had a similar problem (before the vote) and hope we not missing anyone on this important vote 👍

Listened to the Trust on Loathed Strangers this afternoon. Understandably not expecting difficulty getting the membership to vote in favour, but I was a little surprised there wasn't more stress being placed on the difficult thing being getting more than 50% of the membership to vote - that is not a low bar at all, and apathy (and frankly, forgetfulness, not having the right contact details, people having changed addresses/moved/died etc.) is the main thing that will potentially prove difficult here.

For example - at the 2022 local council elections in Swindon, turnout was between the mid 20s and high 30s percentage in every ward. I work in email marketing (tangentially) and getting more than 50% of people to *open* an email, let alone act on it, is a seriously tough task!

Question I guess for Jan - obviously we hope this doesn't happen - but what happens if we get 99% of the vote in favour, but only on a 40% turnout? Is that it, dead in the water? Is there a backup plan?

Thanks for the feedback Nemo, hope you found the LS Pod useful..
Your right in normal situations like Council/General elections getting a 50% turnout can be tough indeed. However I am happy to say we have been delighted with the number of people who have voted so far and there wont be an issue reaching the 50% turnout level I am pleased to say. But also to answer your 2nd part of the question, yes if the 50% and then the 75% part saying Yes were not reached we would have to go back to the drawing board and it would delay the purchase certainly.. Hope that helps.

Never did get an e-mail...but as long as the 50% voting level has been reached I don't suppose it matters.
