    The 2020 OREIO elections will take place on June 17th, 2020, a week following our June OREIO meeting. On June 17th, You will receive an email to the address associated to your OREIO account with the voting instructions. Given the ongoing pandemic restrictions, this year's election will be entirely digital. We will be using our web services provider, Wild Apricot, as the technology to run this year's poll. We've tested this feature and it worked well.

    What will happen?

    1. May 14 - May 29: Nominations for all below positions are open. See instructions below to submit your candidacy.
    2. June 10: OREIO Meeting to announce all nominations and play the pre-recorded introductions of nominees.
    3. June 17: Voting will take place over a 24-hour period via email.
    4. June 18: Results of the elections will be sent out to all OREIO members.
    5. June 18 - July 8: Handover from former OREIO executive members to new ones.
    6. July 9: OREIO Meeting, run by new OREIO executive.
    Please note: You must double check the email address associated with your OREIO account. First off, the poll will be sent to that email only, and when voting you will need to login to your account. One vote per email, and Wild Apricot tracks and blocks more than one submission from each email.
