Members may choose to return their ballot via email or postal mail.
See our bylaws for more information about our nominating process, voting method, and Coordinating Council positions and responsibilities.
Nominations will be accepted and reviewed during the afternoon session of our Spring Gathering, scheduled at 3 PM. Each candidate will be given time to make a brief statement. Also, a short written statement (maximum 500 words) from each candidate to be included with the ballots must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 5 pm on Wednesday May 27th.
New members must have joined the Green Party of Washington by April 23, 2020 to participate and vote in our nominating process. Returning members and those whose membership has lapsed must renew their membership by May 23rd to vote.
