Who Can Vote

Print

Delegates from certified congregations can vote in the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Presidential election. In addition to certified congregation delegates, UUA board members and delegates from the UU Service Committee and the UU Women’s Federation can vote.

Certified congregations are ones that have: filed for certification, held regular religious services, had at least one business meeting, elected officers, maintained membership records, and made a financial contribution to the UUA. To find out if your congregation is certified, check the UUA’s list of certified congregations.

There are two types of delegates from certified congregations. More information on these two types of delegates is below.

Member Delegates

Each congregation that is certified with the UUA gets at least 2 member delegates.

These member delegates are chosen by the congregations through a process each congregation determines for itself. To register your congregation’s delegates go to the UUA Credential Manager. You will need the log-in information for your congregation.

Congregations of more than 100 members get more than 2 delegates. Specifically, for each additional 50 members or fraction thereof, a congregation gets one additional delegate. A table on the UUA website on member delegates outlines this proportional delegate system.

Religious Professionals

Some religious professionals can also be delegates. These religious professional delegates are in addition to the member delegates that a congregation sends and do not subtract from the number of member delegates allotted to a congregation.

To qualify as a delegate, a religious professional must be serving or affiliated with a certified congregation and belong to one of these categories:
Ministers in preliminary or final fellowship with the Association and employed at least half-time (including extension and interim ministers)
Emeritus/a ministers
Community ministers who maintain active involvement and affiliation with the congregation
Directors of religious education with Credentialed Religious Education – Master Level status

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