1- 20,000 = 1 voting delegate
20,001- 40,000 = 2 voting delegates
40,000+ = 3 voting delegates
ACCT will also verify and follow up with the institution, once your voting delegate(s) is registered.

I am a voting delegate that cannot attend and would like an alternate voting delegate to take my place. How do I switch my voting delegate privileges?
First, confirm with your board or board chair of this update. Then submit your request to ACCT before September 28 to email@example.com.
The ACCT Bylaws provide for nominations from the floor on all elections. Nominations must be made by a voting delegate from each candidate’s respective institution. The voting delegate making the nomination must make the nomination on behalf of the member board and provide a letter affirming the member board’s support before the nomination by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If a candidate is to be nominated from the floor and has notified ACCT 10 days prior to the date of Regional Caucuses, the candidate will be eligible to address voting members at Regional Caucuses along with other nominated candidates. Candidates who notify ACCT fewer than 10 days prior to the date of Regional Caucuses WILL NOT be eligible to address voting members at Regional Caucuses.
Candidate biographies can be found in the Fall 2020 Advisor.
