Branch Election Stage IV ½: Speeches!

November 5th General Membership Meeting

ElectionBuddy

One of the things we did at our October 1st meeting was decide to use ElectionBuddy to run our election. The next day, we found out that National will be providing ElectionBuddy to Branches, so we won’t incur any expense for its use.

The Election Supervisory Committee

The function of the Election Supervisory Committee is to run the actual election. The following members were elected to this year’s Election Supervisory Committee:

  • Patrice Baker
  • Wanda Rogers
  • Khalada Salaam-Alaji
  • Carol Spong
  • Korral Taylor

Additionally, each of the Presidential Candidates is allowed to appoint a member to the Election Supervisory Committee. Those appointments were:

  • Shelly Fromholtz (appointed by President Maxwell)
  • Petrina Branch (appointed by Kenya Taylor)

These folks will not only set up the software, but they will be available to help folks who have difficulty using ElectionBuddy during the election.

Also involved in the election will be the Secretary and a set of Watchers & Observers appointed by the Presidential candidates.

If you have questions about the election process, you may reach them with an email to: [email protected].
