The peer review of the USAC membership is now successfully completed, and the USAC Board of Directors would like to thank the membership for their participation. Based upon the peer review and the application process, the USA Cricket’s Nominating and Governance Committee (NGC) announces the final lists of eligible candidates and eligible voters for the 2021 Elections, as well as the timeline for the election voting period and election results announcement.
Final Eligible Candidates (listed in alphabetical order)
The eligible candidates for the League Director position are:
- Anj Balusu
- Punit Patel
The eligible candidates for the Individual Director position are:
- Arjun Gona
- Anuj Patel
- Bhargav Patel
- Rajesh Uppalapati
- Sabu Yunnus
The eligible candidate for the Male Player Director position is:
- Srinivas Salver (incumbent)
The above candidates were vetted and selected by unanimous consent based upon a process defined by the USAC’s Constitution. The process followed was exactly the same applied for the recently concluded Independent Directors selection. Each application was treated in a fair and impartial manner, without fear or favor, regardless of an applicant’s status or stature.
Final Eligible Voter Lists
The final League Director eligible voter list and the final Individual Director eligible voter list are available via the hyperlinks. These members meet the eligibility requirements, subject to any Board resolution applicable to the 2021 elections.
Since the Male Player Director position only has one eligible candidate, the candidate will be declared elected by acclamation when the election results are announced.
Election campaigning can start immediately upon the announcement of these final membership lists.
Voting Period and Method
The two-week election voting period will start on February 6, 2023, at 9 AM, US PDT, and conclude on February 21, 2023, at 9 AM, US PDT.
Election Buddy, an election provider the USAC/NGC has used in prior elections, will conduct the elections. The preferential voting method, as required by the USAC Constitution, will be used for these elections.
Each eligible voter for an election should receive an electronic ballot by email from [email protected]. The email ballot will come with instructions on how to complete voting, which each voter should follow. Importantly, each voter is responsible to ensure that the email ballot and any communication from [email protected] to their email account is not filtered away as spam or junk email.
Only Election Buddy will have any visibility into the elections while they are in progress. Election Buddy will field any and all voter questions and will only contact the NGC when they are not able to answer a question.
Upon completion of the voting period, Election Buddy will tabulate and verify the results as well as resolve ties using coin toss in the virtual presence of the tied candidates and the NGC.
The results will be sent to the CPA firm for an audit review. Once the NGC gets the audited results, it will send them to the USAC Board and the Candidates, before informing the USAC membership and other interested parties.
Note that the process from vote tabulation by Election Buddy, to the audit review by Audit firm, to official result announcement by the NGC may take a few days after the election voting period is completed.
