Candidates MUST attend the regional meeting in which they are running for a Representative Seat.
At the conclusion of all statements and questions, attendees who identify as having lived mental health experience will take a vote by ballot. Each person qualified to vote, including the candidates, may vote for only one candidate per ballot. At every election the CCSM holds, there is a “No Choice” option on each ballot. This option can be selected if you feel the candidate(s) are not qualified for the position. The candidates with the highest number of votes will be deemed selected to the Statewide Consumer Council and will take office immediately.
The CCSM has the discretion to enact any additional procedures necessary to conduct the selection process, so long as they do not conflict with the CCSM Governance Guidelines or any other law.
