Dear DA Lion City Member,

A special election will be held on 22 August 2017 at 7 p.m. to fill our secretary position. It will be held at 5 Farrer Drive, Sommerville Grandeur Condominiums, 259279 in the community room.

Please submit nominations and statement of interests via email to [email protected] no later than 5th August.

If we receive nominations for this position prior to the election, there can be no nominations from the floor of the meeting, as those voting via email will not have the same opportunity to vote for candidates nominated from the floor and voting will already be in process. If there are no candidates for this office, nominations may be made from the floor at the election meeting.

Once all nominations are received, we will email all of the candidate’s statements of interest and a ballot to be reviewed prior to the election.

Options for voting: (choose one):

Vote in person at the election meeting via paper ballot.

Vote via proxy at the election meeting. Submit proxy form by 21st August. Please note that no proxy holder can have more than 2 proxies and that the nominations committee will recommend eligible proxy holders to people who don’t know who to ask. See attached Proxy Form https://www.scribd.com/document/354267620/DA-Lion-City-Proxy.

Please note that you must be a member of Democrats Abroad 14 days prior to the election if casting your vote via email or proxy and 1 day prior to the election if casting your vote in person.

The newly elected Secretary will assume their duties after the election.
