Elections

Purpose
  • The Election Committee is an ad-hoc committee. 
  • The Election Committee Chair is appointed by the School Board for each election (usually twice per year). 
  • The Election Committee coordinates the election process given a slate of open positions, a slate of candidates, a list of voters, and specific dates. 
  • The Recruiting Committee provides the Election Committee with the slate of candidates and the positions they are looking to fill. Please see the Elections page to learn more about open positions and how to apply. 
  • The Election Committee coordinates the distribution of ballot instructions, online voting tools, results processing, and announcement of results when results have been tallied.

Time Commitment

What sort time commitment is required to be on the EC?  Not much. We generally meet twice a year (once for each election) and then spend a week on a couple of phone calls, one day on a weekend printing ballots and stuffing envelopes, and then a couple hours reviewing and the publishing the results.  Lots of fun, and not much time (about 8-10 hrs every 6 months).  Join us!
