The OTW Elections committee is pleased to announce that the timeline for the 2021 election for new members of the Board of Directors has been posted!
This year's election will be held on August 13-16. This means that the deadline for staff to declare their candidacy is June 18.
As usual, the election membership deadline is June 30. If you're interested in voting, please make sure your membership is active as of that date. Please note that your donation receipt will be dated in US Eastern Time, so if your donation is listed after 19:59 on June 30, 2021 on the receipt, you won't be eligible to vote. If you are unsure whether your donation was made before the deadline, please contact our Development and Membership Committee by using the contact form on our website and selecting "Is my membership current/Am I eligible to vote?".
If you want to know more about the election process in general, you can check out the Elections Policies.
We're looking forward to an active election season with ample communication between candidates and voters, and we hope you'll be a part of it. Don't forget to follow the Elections committee on Twitter to keep up to date with the latest news!
If you have any questions or comments, don't hesitate to contact Elections.
