Most members may not know all the candidates running for office in the Chapter election, or those running in their local Group election. To learn a little about the candidates, read the candidate biographies before voting.
Only current Sierra Club members may vote in Sierra Club elections. In order to maintain confidentiality and ensure votes are valid, members use their membership ID# to cast their ballot.
For your member ID#, see your:
- Email 'vote' invitation
- The Cumberland newsletter mailing label
Local Group Name
During the annual ExCom election cycle, members vote for both the Chapter Executive Committee, as well as their own local Group Executive Committee.
Members who live in an area not currently covered by an active Group only vote in the Chapter ExCom election.
In order to vote in the local Group election, members will need to know the name of the Group to which they belong. If you are unsure - use the tool above to find your Group.
Casting Your Ballot
Two Ways to Vote
Members may vote online or by paper ballot which they return in the USPS mail. Paper ballots can be printed out from this website, or cut out from the November issue of the Chapter newsletter "The Cumberland" and mailed in.
Ballots must be RECEIVED by noon on November 30th in order to be included in the tally. To ensure your ballot arrives on time - it is recommended that members who vote by paper ballot send their ballot a week before November 30th at the latest - especially those members living in NKY, as USPS transit time between NKY and Lexington is notoriously slow.
