Ste 2: Collect 15 signatures of members who live in the district you are running for.

You must sign out a petition at the Calallen NEC office. You will need to have 15 members who reside in your district sign your petition. You may have 1 hour at the NEC office to sit down with a pen and paper to record member information from your district.
Petition Return Deadline: Friday, July 24, 2015 by 5:00 p.m.
Each signature will be verified. If you fall short, an NEC representative will contact you. Only two members from each district are allowed on the ballot.
In the event there are more than two, NEC will host a primary election in your district to narrow the nominees to two (2). If needed, District meetings wil be held between June 12- 19, 2015.
Final Election Date: Thursday, October 8, 2015 at the NEC Annual Meeting.
Members are mailed ballots (we use a third party ballot company) in Mid-September. They are due right before the Annual Meeting. On-site voting is allowed at the Annual meeting (if they have not already mailed in a ballot – don’t worry, we track this very closely). Results of the election are announced during the business meeting.
