Voting

Votes / nominations will be received between 15 November 2018 and 28 February 2019. Paper voting forms should be posted no later than 22 February 2019

Vote online at awards.eac.org.uk is open to all residents of all housing for later life in the UK, as well as to visitors and staff.

Residents and visitors with online access can ask others to vote for them, but only one vote per email address will be accepted, thus depriving this third party from voting for themselves.

A paper voting form with a Freepost return address can be used by residents and visitors without online access. The form can be downloaded from this website’s homepage or ordered as pdf by email at housingawards@eac.org.uk

Selection process

The selection method for the Regional Awards is based on the number of votes/nominations received for a housing scheme, compared to the number of dwelling units in it.

All online and postal votes are entered in the same IT programme which has the complete details of each housing scheme in the UK, including the number of flats (or bungalows). The programme can rank the schemes in order of ratio votes/units. It can also indicate the ratio of residents’ votes (i.e. without the staff and visitors votes), a helpful selector when needed.

The National finalists are made of all regional gold awards winners. The national winners are then selected following the same process as the regional winners, i.e. ratio of votes to number of dwelling units.
