Rules on voting are complex. Go to for latest information. Meeting open to public. Information could change:
Candidates need 70% of the votes cast to secure a place on the State Convention Consent Calendar. This is a public vote. A single roll call vote via signed written ballot, in the same form as the absentee ballot, shall be taken. If you cannot attend the conference in person, the VBM ballot in voter packet must be mailed or delivered only to the Regional Convener responsible for the district. VBM ballots which are late or are delivered to the wrong Regional Convener are not valid. Once received by the designated Regional Convener, a ballot, absentee or otherwise, may not be retracted, rescinded, or otherwise changed and shall be counted in the totals. Proxy voting is not allowed.
The names of the voters for each district will be read aloud and the conference secretary will read the vote cast in accordance with the signed vote-by-mail ballot that was received by the Regional Convener.
At the end of the roll call, the votes for each candidate and for "no endorsement" will be tallied.
Should a candidate receive the 70% of the vote, s/he will be recommended candidate for endorsement. Such recommendations will go on the Consent Calendar to be ratified at the State Convention on Sunday, March 30, 2008, at the San Jose Convention Center.
If no candidate receives the required 70%, the conference shall have taken the position of "no recommendation" for endorsement.
If one candidate received over 50% for a district, the race will go to the caucuses held during the March convention.
