Your Home, Your Say

Use your vote!

Ballot papers have arrived at 8,500 homes across Salford asking tenants to use their vote on Salford City Council proposals to transfer their homes to Salix Homes. It is really important that tenants take this opportunity and use their vote. Tenants can cast their vote by post, phone, internet and by text.

  • Post - return your ballot paper in the pre-paid envelope provided
  • Vote online - use your two-part security code printed on your ballot paper
  • Phone - call 0800 197 4614 and follow the telephone instructions
  • Text - Text your vote (starting with the election code, please include a space between each code and your answer) to 80212. You will be sent a text message to confirm the receipt of your vote.

The ballot is being run by independent experts, Electoral Reform Services. The ballot will close at noon on Monday 3 November 2014.

Councillor Gena Merrett, Assistant Mayor for Housing and Environment, said: "It is really important that all tenants use their vote. "I strongly believe that the proposed transfer to Salix Homes provides the best deal for tenants both now and long into the future - making sure the money is available when it is needed to invest and improve homes and communities in Salford - but it is for tenants to decide."

Barbara Harper, who is chair of the Salix Homes Customer Senate, said: "We have put a lot of work in to make sure the transfer proposals meet what we as tenants want from our home and housing service. I'd urge all tenants not to waste this opportunity and to use their vote."
