The RI Democratic Women's Caucus Executive Committee Voting Process
Updated: Mar 13
Due to Covid19, we cannot come together to vote in person, as we have in the past. Instead we are using an online voting system called "Election Buddy." As this is a brand new process for all involved, we ask for your patience as we employ this system for the first time.
How Voting Members Receive Their Ballots
Voting members of the Women's Caucus will have received an email at 7:00pm on Thursday, February 12 from firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading "Vote now: Rhode Island Democratic Women's Caucus - 2021 Executive Committee Election." That email will have the link to your ballot. You can access the link by desktop or mobile, whichever is easiest for you.
If you did not receive this email, please check outside of your Primary inbox tab in other tabs, such as "Promotions," "Updates," "Social," or "Forums" in Gmail, and check in your spam/junk folder. If you still cannot locate this email, contact Jessie Kingston at email@example.com for assistance.
If you didn't receive a ballot, and you believe you should have, we can add you. As a reminder, here are the criteria for Voting Members:
Woman/femme identifying person
Completed a full membership form
On the RI Board of Elections as a Democrat
Registered as Women's Caucus member up to 48 hours before election began (Tue, 2/9)
What the Ballots Look Like
We are employing Preferential Voting for this election. If you have questions about how Preferential Voting works, Election Buddy has this brief tutorial: https://electionbuddy.com/features/voting-systems/preferential-voting
When Does the Election Take Place?
The ballot is available to complete from 7pm Thu, Feb 11 to 5pm Wed, Feb 24. The winners of the election will be announced at the February General Meeting on Thu, Feb 25.
