Posted to the LNC list by Chair Geoff Neale:
I am putting the election of LNC chosen Convention Committee members on the agenda for the next LNC meeting. I do not want to waste any time at all, so I am proposing the following:
At a very early time in the agenda on Saturday, nominations will be opened for each Convention Committee one at a time. All prior submissions made will be reported and accepted. Subsequent nominations from the floor will be recorded. We will NOT vote upon closing the nominations. Once all nominations for all committees have been made and closed, we will have formal printed ballots created by staff and the Secretary. These ballots will be distributed to each LN member as soon as possible, definitely prior to close of the Saturday session. The deadline for submitting the ballots will be approximately one hour after the beginning of the Sunday session. During the Sunday session, the results will be tabulated and reported.
Please note that there will be NO nomination speeches allowed. Instead, nominees can submit written qualifications.
Since we also have the imperative of appointing an interim chair for each committee, I am proposing that the highest vote recipient be so appointed. In the case of a tie, we will resolve the tie by lowest alphabetically by last name.
Please help me figure out if there’s an even less intrusive manner in which we can hold these elections.
BTW – the committees and our appointments are:
Bylaws – ten members, all chosen by the LNC, no more than five of which can be LNC members.
Credentials – five members chosen by the LNC, five my the five largest states.
Platform – ten members chosen by the LNC, no more than five of which can be from the ten largest states (each of which appoints a single member).
