may18_election

From Thursday, May 24 to Saturday, May 26 at 11:59pm Eastern, the Youth Caucus will be having a special election on two items.

While caucus-wide votes are typically at least one week, internal rules allow the Steering Committee to run a 3-day vote in pressing situations. Because of the upcoming nature of the California primary, the SC has chosen to use the 3-day vote. 

1. Endorsement in the California Secretary of State Primary

2. By-Laws Changes

Both require a 60% threshold of those voting to pass. 


1. Endorsement in the California Secretary of State Primary

Young Green Erik Rydberg has sought the endorsement of the caucus. However, there is another Green, Mike Feinstein, running for CA Secretary of State as well. Per the by-laws, the caucus must decide with 60% approval to endorse a candidate in an election where Greens are competing against one another in a primary. 

Go here to see their endorsement questionnaires. 


2. By-Laws Changes

Due to some recent circumstances within the caucus, the Steering Committee is putting forth a by-laws change that updates several aspects of the by-laws for clarity and to prevent tampering. It also ties the member proposal thresholds to the amount of members we have as the caucus grows. 

Go here to see the by-laws changes in full.
