Hello Freesiders! It's that time again for elections! Here is some info on how we will conduct the elections. This will be preserved for our records on the wiki at https://wiki.freesideatlanta.org/fs/Elections07Nov2017

Electing 4 directors and 1 President. Those elected will hold office for 1 year. In case of a tie one candidate may concede a vote for the purpose of breaking the tie. You must nominate yourself to run by Nov. 1st! If you want to email your ballot, you may do so to secretary@freesideatlanta.org by 7 pm on the day of the election. If you want to vote by secret ballot, ballots will be provided at the Member's Meeting on the 3rd of November. You must be in good standing both to run and to vote! We should be creating a meetup event for this shortly. If there are any questions, inconsistencies, or anything seems unclear, please shoot me an email and we will work it out!
