Ballot requests and Membership eligibility

2021 Bylaws Referendum

Ballot Requests

Once the balloting period begins (June 7th) if you do not receive an e-ballot, postcard or paper ballot within one week, you should file a ballot request form. The ballot request form for the 2021 referendum will be available on elections.pacifica.org on June 7th, 2021.

Listener Member Eligibility

To check your eligibility, contact your station’s membership department. The national election supervisor cannot add you to the list of voting members as she receives these lists from the stations and does not have the authority to add members to the voter roll.

  1. If you are a listener member you are eligible if you donated a minimum of $25 between April 8th 2020 and April 7th 2021 to your station or if you completed at least 3 hours of eligible volunteer work.
  2. Second household members. If you are making a joint donation of $50 or more you should request stations enter the second household member as a separate member as currently stations do not track second household members consistently.

Staff Member Eligibility

The national election supervisor will be sending a link to station staff with the most current staff list in order to assist in vetting the list by checking for members who are missing or who should not be included. The general managers at each station will have to approve final staff lists.

  1. If you are unpaid staff who completed 30 hours of programming work for your station between Jan. 7th 2021 and April 7th 2021 you are eligible.
  2. If you are paid staff on payroll as of April 7th 2021 you are eligible.
