Voting for National Election positions will commence on May 19 and conclude on June 14.

Ballots will be made available to all DAJ members on May 19.

All members are invited to take part in the Sunday, May 19 Meet the Candidates events being held throughout Japan. The NEC will post details about these events on a DAJ MeetUp! event page (forthcoming) and the DAJ Facebook Meet The Candidates Facebook event page: http://www.facebook.com/events/274970940051279/

We encourage all DAJ Kanto members to join us on May 19 so that you may take an active role in the Kanto Chapter elections, as well as the national elections taking place at the same time. It will be a great opportunity to meet other like-minded people and to find out more about the people who will guide us to victory in the 2020 elections.

Events will be held in Tokyo and possibly other areas in Kanto. Information will be provided on the DAJ Facebook event page above. However, even if you are not able to join in person, you may participate online. 

If you would like to hold a Meet the Candidates event in your area, please contact the 2019 NEC before May 12 so we will help you get everything organized. Contact the 2019 NEC with any questions at daj2019elections@gmail.com

We look forward to an engaging discussion with the candidates on May 19!
