Process for Special Election to NJLA Board

If the board chooses to hold a special election it should occur within 60 days. The Nominations & Elections Committee will notify the membership as soon as possible of the vacant position and invite nominations by online petition. Any interested NJLA member in good standing may apply to be a candidate at least 28 days before the election. A candidate must then be endorsed by 15 individual members, also in good standing, to be added to the ballot. Completed petitions must be received at least 14 days before the election.
