We will not be providing early voting, but we will allow members 20 minutes to complete the first initial ballot on the day of the election which elects the 11 members to the board. Once the 11 members are elected, we will move to election by position. Every ballot for a position will be given 5 minutes to complete. Each candidate will be able to speak for 2 minutes, they will be called on in alphabetical order. Each candidate will receive 2 minutes to speak and 3 minutes to answer questions from members on May 23. For a full list of answers to frequently asked questions please view our FAQ page here.
