According to GPCA Bylaws 8-2.1, "The Coordinating Committee shall be composed of up to 24 voting members, with 12 men and 12 women. Six men and six women shall be elected each year to serve staggered, two year terms" (http://www.cagreens.org/bylaws/2013-03-23#Section_8-2_Membership) and 8-4.1 "Elections shall be conducted each year by the Standing Green Assembly using Ranked Choice Voting with a No Other Candidate option, with the six week discussion period beginning on the first Monday of May and the one week voting period commencing immediately thereafter."

Furthermore 8-4.5. speaks about filling vacancies and states "for 2013 only, there shall be a separate, one-time election for male and for female seats, combining unfilled two-year seats in the election, and the remainder of one-year seats not previously scheduled for election until 2014, where the top vote getter(s) will fill the two-year seats and the others will fill the one-year seats."

Since the most recent Coordinating Committee elections in June 2013, there has been one female vacancy, the result of resignation. As there is one applicant, in practice, that means this election is to fill one vacant female seat on the GPCA Coordinating Committee (http://www.cagreens.org/committees/coordinating), for the remainder of the two-year tern ending June 30, 2015. The Coordinating Committee's Duties and Authority are found here http://www.cagreens.org/bylaws/2013-03-23#Section_8-1_Duties_and_Authority.

(http://www.cagreens.org/bylaws/2013-03-23#Section_8-4_Elections). 8-4.3(b) adds that "A full and detailed explanation of Ranked Choice Voting, an explanation of the No Other Candidate option, and an encouragement that delegates make their choices seriously and a reminder that they do not have to fill all seats unless they feel there are enough qualified candidates."
