2.12 Election Practices: UUA Governance Manual

In order to provide wide dissemination of information about Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) elections, and to make it possible for all qualified candidates to seek national office without undue financial and time burdens, the President shall not fail to establish appropriate policies, practices and communications systems to support the election process.

With respect to election practices, the President shall not:

  1. Fail to provide and publicize information for all contested and uncontested candidates for offices to be elected by General Assembly delegates, maximize access to candidate information by all member congregations, and help manage the cost of campaigning for UUA national office.
  2. Permit staff to show favoritism towards or against any candidate for UUA elected office.
  3. Fail to provide to any individual who has been nominated for election as President, Moderator, Financial Advisor, or Trustee any information that is being provided to current Trustees, with the exception of materials related to matters for discussion in executive sessions of the Board of Trustees.
