How to Vote

There are three candidates running for UUA president: Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray, Rev. Alison Miller, and Rev. Jeanne Pupke. Whoever wins this election will become the first female president of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). The UUA is central organization for Unitarian Universalists in the United States. You can read more about the Unitarian Universalist Association at the UUA website.

As there are three candidates running for President of the UUA, this year the presidential election will have ranked choice voting. That means that each voter will record their first and second choice candidate for UUA President. If no candidate gets a majority of the first-choice votes, then the candidate with the least first-choice votes will be eliminated. The second choices of everyone who voted for the now eliminated candidate will be distributed to the remaining two candidates. In this way, whoever wins the presidential election will have received a majority of votes cast.

The Voting Process

Voting this year is online. Congregations will receive delegate credentials electronically from the UUA. These delegate credentials will then be distributed by congregation leaders. Once delegates have these credentials and voting opens, they will be able to vote.

Voting opens on June 1st and extends through 5pm Central Time on Saturday, June 24th. Once voting opens, delegates can vote at any time from their computer, phone, or other device with internet access. In addition, voting kiosks will be available from 9:00am to 5:00pm Central Time on June 24th at General Assembly 2017.

If a delegate wishes to vote by paper mail instead of electronically, they need to mail a request for a paper ballot to:
UUA General Assembly
24 Farnsworth Street
Boston, MA 02210

Voting and General Assembly (GA) Registration

General Assembly (GA) is the Unitarian Universalists Association’s annual meeting. The Assembly this year will take place in New Orleans. For more information about GA, you can visit the UUA General Assembly webpage.

To cast their vote delegates can:
Register for and travel to GA
Register for GA as an off-site pariticpant
Be a delegate from a congregation but not register for GA

Delegates can vote for free in the presidential election by not registering for GA. However, this form of voting is limited because they cannot vote on GA business items.

More information on voting can be found on the UUA 2017 election webpage.



So grateful to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Phoenix for their support in this journey.
