DEBATES AND ASK-THE-CANDIDATE: Best of luck to all candidates, and remember to drop over to http://stjohnspride.boards.net/ to talk to your candidates and debate in advance of the election on October 5th.

More posts to come regarding next steps and explaining the electoral process in greater detail. In the meantime if you have any questions about the electoral process, voting system used, or other electoral questions contact krees@stjohnspride.ca. If you would like to submit a complaint or report suspicious activity contact Pamela Sheaves, CRO at psheaves@stjohnspride.ca.

PLEASE BE ADVISED: All Co-Chair candidates have chosen to, as offered to them in their application, simultaneously run for At-Large positions so should they be unsuccessful in their bid for Co-Chair they may still hold a seat with our Board.

This option was offered to assure that we have all the awesome possibilities and combinations available from this excellent pool of people, and believe it’s a far better process than discarding dedicated volunteers. Voters will see Co-Chair candidates’ names appear on both the Co-Chair **AND** Director-At-Large ballot. This is NOT an error. This is simply a candidate’s “second chance” if unsuccessful in their primary bid. Vote as you normally would based on your preferences and the electoral system and electoral officials will handle the rest!
