District Elections

Nominating Committees are elected or appointed in varying ways:

  • Three (or five) members of the nominating committee are elected by the delegates at the annual meeting.
  • Members of the nominating committee serve staggered terms.
  • The nominating committee presents a slate of candidates for officer positions, board positions, nominating committee positions, and in some districts, for standing committees.
  • Nominations from the floor are unusual and not allowed in some districts.
  • District elections are usually not contested.
  • Elections for Unitarian Universalist Association trustee are frequently contested; the trustee is elected by member congregations using the same voting procedure (number of delegates per society) as delegates to General Assembly.
