The voting process for the election of the 2013-2014 Youth Observer to the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Board of Trustees is based on the process used to determine the number of congregational delegates at General Assembly.
A one-page information sheet (PDF) of the following information is also available for download.
Voting youth must be active in their religious community. “Active” may be defined as regular participation, registration in the religious education program, or congregational membership. Each congregation determines what "active" means for their community.
Each congregation receives one vote for every 5 youth participants, with a maximum of 6 votes per congregation.
Review the Youth Observer Candidates information (you may also print out a hard copy (PDF)), watch the candidates' videos, and discuss the candidates as a group. Use whatever decision making process works for the youth in your congregation to make your voting choice. Each congregation may split their total allotted votes among different candidates on their ballot, and the congregation submits their ballot as a group. You have the choice to submit via an online ballot or a printed ballot.
Complete the online ballot per the directions listed on the ballot, using the Voting Formula and Voting Process above.
Ballots must be received by MONDAY, APRIL 29, 2013, at midnight (in your time zone) or postmarked by Friday, April 26th. The individual listed as the contact on your Voting Ballot will receive confirmation of the receipt of your Voting Ballot. If that individual does not receive confirmation, it is their responsibility to contact the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries at youth @ uua.org or (617) 948-4350 by Tuesday, April 30th (5:00 p.m. Eastern) to ensure that your Voting Ballot is received and counted.
For more information contact youth @ uua.org.
