CalATMA received an outpouring of requests from members for the use of online voting in the inaugural Board of Trustees election. CalATMA aims to always be representative of and responsive to its members to remain a transparent, democratic and inclusive association.Therefore, we are pleased to announce that the Steering Committee approved the use of electronic voting for the inaugural election in addition to the physical locations voting on December 9. Online voting will be available on December 1 – December 8.We are excited to present a very qualified slate of 21 candidates for the 10 LAc Trustee positions and 2 candidates for the Student Trustee position. You can learn more about each candidate by clicking here:CalATMA 2018 Board of Trustee Candidates You can only vote once – either electronically or in-person at one of the designated physical locations on Sunday, December 9. We will be verifying each voter at the physical locations on December 9 to ensure they did not vote online. Any voter casting multiple ballots (for example: one ballot online and another ballot via live voting) will have all of that voter’s ballots invalidated. Please note that the online voting process is secure and anonymous so nobody will ever see how you voted.Please see the election policies and procedures to better understand the election process: Election PoliciesYou will receive an e-mail with a link to vote online from OpaVote, the online voting software company, after midnight on Saturday, December 1 to the address provided on your CalATMA member.
