2019 Election Cycle

This year we want more than ever to make these elections sustainable. Please help by providing us your email to send you an e-ballot.

We do not want to disenfranchise any voter who cannot cast an e-ballot and hence will be providing paper ballots to members who need them.

Click here to for the 2019 Ballot Request Form to give us your email for an e-ballot or to indicate if you need a paper ballot.

Members who need a paper ballot can also contact the election supervisor by leaving a voicemail on 510-854-9663. Make sure to leave your full name, address and telephone number.
