Membership Delegate Elections
In the fall of every year, it's membership delegate election time!
As detailed in our Bylaws, each Service Unit can elect a delegate, it is no longer elections by county. Elections will be held at a regular Service Unit Meeting, not at a separate election meeting. Simple quorum requirement (and easy to achieve!) Membership Delegate Elections are to take place during the 1st quarter of the membership year (10/1 – 12/31/17).
How are Membership Delegates elected?
- Elections will be held at a Service Unit meeting in October, November, or December.
- Registered members, ages 14+, can vote in elections for membership delegates. This means that most of our high school girls can vote!
- Members can only vote in the election of membership delegates for the Service Unit in which the member resides.
- The Election Meeting is presided over by the SUD, and voting takes place very simply.
- If the first delegate a Service Unit elects is a girl, they can elect a second delegate. If the first delegate is an adult, no further delegate can be elected. Note: Both delegates may be girls.
- There are no longer Alternate Membership Delegates.
- Ballot if it is contested election.
