Campaigning and Voting Periods and Method

Election campaigning can start immediately upon this announcement, while the voting period will commence on July 8, 2023, at 9 AM US PDT, and conclude on July 13, 2023, at 11:59 PM US PDT.

Election Buddy, an election provider the USAC/NGC has used in prior elections, will conduct the elections. The voting method will be employed using a preferential voting system as constitutionally stated, and has been employed in prior 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, it is the responsibility of each voter 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 election 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(s).

Election Results
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 Audit 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 and public.

Note that the process from vote tabulation by Election Buddy, through the audit review by the Audit firm, to official result announcement by the NGC, may take a few days after the election voting period is completed.
