Election will be done online by https://electionrunner.com/ same as last year.
The Election officer will not have access to members, election result or ballots.
A SFABTM member trusted and appointed by the election office will sign a non discloser agreement and will work with Treasurer to verify the member information from Jan 2021 to until the new membership cut off and will work with the Secretary to get the members emails (only emails and no other information) on file to upload into https://electionrunner.com/ and will send the ballots and will receive the election results. This representative will announce the results in the annual general body meeting, If he is not available at that time, the EO will get the results from this representative and will announce the results.
Election will be conducted using the online service https://electionrunner.com/. Votes will be registered electronically and anonymously. Nobody including the Election Officer will know how the members voted.
