Voting is Open for DSA At-Large Delegates to the 2019 National Convention!
Who are the candidates?
How does voting work?
There are 100 open positions for at-large delegates. We encourage you to read over the candidate bios and then to rank the candidates in order of your preference. Top Choice = 1, Second choice = 2, Third choice = 3, etc. This is a Borda style election. In a Borda election you have the option to rank all of the candidates. Your votes will be weighted so that your top choice has the most weight and last choice has the least weight. Watch a short tutorial here.
Although you can, you do not have to rank all of the candidates. For example, if you only like 10 of the candidates, you can choose to only include those people 1-10 and leave out the rest. You can find more information on Borda elections here.
Who can vote in the At-Large Delegate election?
An At-Large DSA member is any member who does not belong to a chapter and who is current on their dues as of May 6th 2019 (or has made arrangements for the National Office to waive their dues). Based on DSA’s National Constitution and Bylaws, members of Organizing Committees are also considered At-Large Members of DSA.
How do I find my voting code?
If you receive DSA emails, your code was emailed to you on May 12.
If you have opted out of DSA emails, or if we do not have a working email associated with your membership, your voting code was sent via paper mailing on May 12. Please allow 1-2 weeks for it to arrive. If you have not received your code, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request your code.
When will I be able to vote in the DSA At-Large Delegate Election?
