Biennial Reorganization Meeting

Sunday, Dec. 13, 2020 at 10 am on Zoom
(link coming later)

TO READ NOMINEE STATEMENTS, CLICK HERE!

Nominations must be submitted by Monday, December 7 via email to: info@jeffcodemocrats.com

REORG RULES

To nominate someone for any of the offices, email the following to info@jeffcodemocrats.com by Dec. 7:

  • The nominee’s FULL NAME, ADDRESS, PHONE NUMBER, EMAIL AND GENDER (which must be the same for all positions for which they are candidates).
  • If possible, include a list of ALL positions for which the person wishes to be considered.

If someone is willing to serve in different positions, we recommend they submit their name for nomination for any and all positions in which they are willing to serve. In this way their name will be on the ballot and considered. For example, if they were considered for but not elected Secretary, they could still be considered for District Representative. This is an important point since we will NOT be taking nominations from the floor for this meeting. If a person is elected to a position, they can simply decline the other nominations as the meeting proceeds.

Nominees may submit a picture and a 300-word statement to be placed on the JCD website. Email the statement and photo to info@jeffcodemocrats.com by Dec. 7.
