ELNA Board Elections Procedures

Turn out and vote for your ELNA Board at our next meeting, Monday November 2nd 2015!

Because of the enormous interest in the election this year, the entire ELNA meeting of November 2nd will be turned over to election business, and we’ll be doing things a little different than in years past.  Please read further for information and instructions.  With questions, email Lane at eastlawrence@yahoo.com.

When and Where:
Monday, November 2nd7-8 pm
New York School, 936 New York St
Cafeteria and Gym

Much like your average voting experience, you will visit a series of tables.  First, you will verify your membership.  If you are a current member, your name will be on a list of dues-paid members.  If you are not a current member, you will have the opportunity to sign up for a membership then.  Once your membership is verified, you will move to second table where you will receive your ballot.  After your ballot is filled in, you will turn it in at another table.
Because we must vacate the building by 10pm and the ballot counting process will take some time, we must limit the voting time frame to 7-8pm.  All persons wishing to cast a ballot must be in line to do so by 8pm.  All late arrivals, regrettably, must be turned away.
Ballots will then be tallied.  The top 13 vote-getters will be declared the 2015-2016 Board.  The results will then be released for publishing on the ELNA website as soon as possible.
The 2015-2016 Board will then meet at their convenience to determine officers.

A. Of Conduct:
The League of Women Voters, Lawrence/Douglas County has graciously agreed to moderate our ELNA Board election this year, and has determined that these standard government election practices will be observed:
1) There will be no campaigning in or outside the building.
2) No campaign material will be left in the building
3) No one will leave the room with the ballot
4) Voters will arrive and depart in an efficient and orderly fashion
B. Of Voting Eligibility:
All in-neighborhood individual (not business, nor non-profit, nor out-of-neighborhood associate) members are eligible to vote.  East Lawrence property owners with property title in their personal name will be permitted to vote as in-neighborhood members.  Proof of residence will not be required. A map of the official boundaries of East Lawrence will be available.

Other Notes:
The League of Women Voters would also like to extend the offer of voter registration at the time of the ELNA election.  LWV can register anyone who needs to newly register to vote, or update their registration in the case that they have moved or changed their name. If you would like to newly register or update a registration, bring a proof of citizenship such as a birth certificate, passport, Native American tribal card, Naturalization document, or other document.  More information on Kansas voter registration requirements can be found at the League of Women Voters website:http://lawrenceleague.com/
