The Anticipated Election Timetable is maintained courtesy of the Speaker of the Union pursuant to the Voting Reform and Fair Political Practices Act and provides anticipated term and election start and end dates at least one year into the future. It assumes vacancies and subsequent early elections, as well as extended elections due to insufficient candidates, will not occur. Further, the law provides some flexibility, as well as various timing requirements, on the part of the Election Administrator, such as:

  • The nomination period for all regular elections cannot begin any earlier than 21 days but no later than 14 days before the expiration of the current term for that office, or, no later than 5 days following a vacancy in that office. Ministerial elections should begin as fast as possible after a Delegate election concludes.
  • The voting period for regular or approval (extended) elections may start no later than 2 days following the conclusion of the nomination period of the same election and no later than 7 days before the conclusion of the incumbent elected officer's term, if applicable.
  • Nomination periods for different offices, whenever feasible, should be concurrent and should not be partially or wholly concurrent with a voting period for another office.
