Background

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." (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."

This election is for six two-year male seats for vacancies on the GPCA Coordinating Committee (http://www.cagreens.org/committees/coordinating) for two year terms running from July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2018; and for three on-year male seats filling the remaining year of three current vacancies. The top six vote getters will be elected to the two-year seats and the next three to the one-year seats. The Coordinating Committee's Duties and Authority are found here http://www.cagreens.org/bylaws/2013-03-23#Section_8-1_Duties_and_Authority.

Ranked Choice Voting is explained here http://www.fairvote.org/reforms/fair-representation-voting/choice-voting http://www.fairvote.org/reforms/instant-runoff-voting http://www.sfgov2.org/index.aspx?page=876 http://www.acgov.org/rov/rcv. Ranking 'No Other Candidate' (NOC) means once NOC passed the approval threshold, no further candidates will be elected, other than those (if any) who have already been elected before NOC reached the threshold.
