Attention USCF Members: Don’t forget to register as a voting member at the following link: secure2.uschess.org/voter-registration.php so you can vote in this year’s Executive Board election. You can also register to vote by contacting the USCF office (see below). There is no registration fee.
Voting Members elect the Executive Board. USCF members (except those with memberships of less than one year in duration, ie, 2 month memberships) can register as a voting member. Voting members must be age 16 or over as of June 30 of the election year.
Eligible members who are not already registered as Voting Members must register by May 1st to be eligible to vote in that year’s regular election. All members who are selected as USCF Delegates, Alternate Delegates or Executive Board members are automatically registered as Voting Members.
Once registered, a member’s status as a Voting Member continues as long as he or she remains a USCF member. However, when someone’s USCF membership lapses for at least 4 weeks, Voting Member status ceases and the member must, after rejoining, again register by May 1st to be eligible to vote in that year’s regular election.
In order to vote in a regular election, registered Voting Members must also be USCF members on May 5th of the election year, for the entire day (US Central Time).
To contact the USCF office to register to vote, contact Cheryle Bruce, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 1-800-903-8723, extension #147. From outside of the USA, call 931-787-1234, extension #147. Be sure to give your name, USCF ID, birthdate and mailing address to confirm your identity.
