ELECTRONIC VOTE IS INTRODUCED IN 2018
Following the recurrent requests from our membership and the motions of the SVU General Assembly Meetings of July 4, 2014 and September 4, 2016, the Membership Referendum of December 20, 2016 decided on Bylaws amendment allowing electronic vote by Art. 17-6, effective as of February 18, 2017.
On September 16, 2017, the retiring Executive Board appointed a Management Committee as per Art. 14-1 with the task to ensure legal compliance and cost efficiency of the 2018 Election.
Based on references from reputable nonprofit organizations, the Committee has selected a professional election provider:
Survey & Ballot Systems (SBS) who has been setting the standard in election management since 1990.
