Voting Process

The following is the default timeline for TOC selections to use. The times can be adjusted to avoid weekends and holidays, but it’s essential that the final schedule be published in advance and adhered to. Eligible voters are specified publicly during the nomination process. Voting occurs by a time-limited Condorcet-IRV ranking in CIVS.

  • Call for nominations: Noon PT, E-16 days
  • End of call for nominations: Noon PT, E-9 days
  • A ballot will be distributed on: E-7 days
  • The election will be completed on: Noon PT, E-day and election results are announced


Any vacancies will be filled by using the original selection method for that seat and the replacement will serve the remainder of the original term.
