Nomination Process

Candidates for ASM Executive Board officers shall be nominated by any ASM adult member by nominations from the floor in the annual nomination meeting.

The annual nomination meeting shall be the October ASM meeting. 

 

Election Process

Eligibility to vote

In order to qualify to vote in an ASM election, a member (or representative of a family membership):

a.  Must be a member in good standing at the time of the election;

b.  Must have dues fully paid up and current at the time of the election;

c.  And must have attended at least three meetings prior to the election meeting during the past 12 months preceding the election.

 

Election of officers

Officers shall be elected by ASM membership at the meeting following the Nomination Meeting and should occur in November.

A family membership has only one vote.

In the case of an uncontested election, the election may be conducted by voice vote or show of hands by ASM membership present at the Election Meeting. 

In the case of a contested election, voting will be conducted by written ballot.

Ballots may be submitted to the current ASM Secretary/Treasurer by mail or in person, prior to the Election Meeting, or at the Election Meeting prior to the cutoff time previously announced.

Ballots shall be tallied by at least two current Executive Board members and the newly elected Executive Board officers shall be announced at that Election Meeting. 

The new Executive Board officers shall be determined by a majority vote.  In case of a tie, the winner shall be decided by the flip of a coin.

How we will do the November Election: 

Come up, be checked for current membership and attendance, be given ballot with a number on it, vote, put  the ballot in ballot box.
