What is WoolPoll?

WoolPoll is the opportunity wool growers have every three years to vote on what percentage of your wool income you’d like to invest in research, development (R&D) and marketing undertaken by AWI.

Why vote?

Only with your levy investment can AWI continue to undertake R&D and marketing projects for the Australian wool industry.
WoolPoll is your opportunity to directly influence how much funding AWI will receive for the next three years.

Who can vote?

If you have paid $100 or more in wool levies over the past three financial years, you are eligible to vote in WoolPoll. Your voting entitlement is determined from records of your wool sales and can be found on the Ballot Paper sent with your Voter Information Memorandum.

What are the rates?

The WoolPoll Regulations require AWI to propose 3 to 5 levy rates for you to vote on, including a zero option if you do not believe investment in R&D and marketing for the industry is required.

WoolPoll 2018 asks you to consider five levy rate options:
3%  2.5%  2%  1.5%  0%

What rate does AWI recommend?

AWI recommends voting to maintain 2%.

When can I vote?

Voting opens on 17 September 2018.

The poll closes at 5pm (AEDT) on 2 November 2018.
