Electronic voting will start Thursday. All active members will receive their ballot via email that day.  All voting will be electronic, there will be no paper ballots this year. If you do not want to vote ahead of time, you are welcome to come to the Election Meeting party this Sunday afternoon, and vote at Quelab; there will be food provided! You will need to have access to your email to get to your voting email from the OPAVOTE system to use your specific voter setup (each one is unique).

A REMINDER: The Quelab by-laws state we MUST reach quorum for voter turnout, which is why we have electronic voting, encourage voting ahead of time, and ask that ALL vote in the Board of Directors’ Election.  You are even free to submit a blank ballot, and NOT vote for ANYONE; that will still count towards quorum!

Vote Ranking – When voting, everyone will be asked to rank all of the candidates that they want to vote for; they can rank as many candidates as they want. Unless they are voting for only one candidate, the votes must be ranked. The votes will be counted using a single transferable vote system.
