Ballot requests and Membership eligibility

Ballot Requests

Pacifica tries very hard to keep accurate lists, but like all understaffed nonprofits with thousands of members, sometimes there are mistakes. We are making a proactive attempt this year to start early
with cleaning the membership lists in order to have as few problems as possible.

However, it is inevitable that some quantity of people will find themselves dropped off of the lists due to human error. Nobody is perfect!

If it happens to you, please file a ballot request form to request a new or replacement ballot (CLICK HERE). Replacement ballot requests will be batch-processed and you will get a new ballot prior to the end of the voting period. Please fill out the form, so we can have records of all of the requests and the fulfillment. Taking the time to fill out the form makes sure everyone gets serviced promptly and your request will not get overlooked. Please do not submit multiple times as this will just fill the system with duplicates and slow down the process for everyone.

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 July 1 2020 and June 30th 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 April 1st 2021 and June 30th 2021 you are eligible.
  2. If you are paid staff on payroll as of June 30th 2021 you are eligible.
