The Voting Process
The deadline for candidates to enter the Leadership Race is Saturday March 7, 2015. Paper memberships must be received in the office by 5pm, Friday March 13, 2015. Online memberships will be accepted until 5pm, Saturday March 14, 2015. You must be a member to vote for the new Leader. To purchase or renew your membership click here.
To ensure the integrity of the Leadership Race, the voting process will be conducted exclusively by a third party organization, Simply Voting. Starting on/or around March 12th, 2015 each member will receive, via first class mail, a letter which contains a unique, secure PIN for voting purposes. This PIN can only be used once to vote and voting can only be conducted over the phone. There are numbers for North America, and outside North America, contained in the letter, in the event that our members are travelling during the voting timeline. If you purchase a membership between March 5th, 2015 and March 14th, 2015 your information will be sent to the provider on the March 15th, and you will receive your PIN during the week of the 23rd.
It is of great importance that you take this time to verify your correct mailing address and email – please call the office at 1-888-262-1888 or, preferably, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, address and preferred email.
In the event that we do not have your correct address information and you do not receive a PIN you will need to notify the office after the 23rd of March at 1-888-262-1888, or via email@example.com RE: PIN. You will need to provide a valid email address and Simply Voting will verify that your original PIN has not been used, and your identity. Once that is complete they will issue you a secure digital PIN to your email, and immediately cancel your original PIN.
Members will be able to begin voting at 9:00 AM on Monday March 16th, 2015 and the voting will close Saturday March 28th, 2015 at 3:00 PM.
