March voting procedures will be as in the past few years. From March 4 to March 11 a ballot box will be available at each of the two UC public libraries to cast a ballot. Ballots and instructions will be posted no later than Friday March 1 and may be found here:

In person voting will also be available at our UCPG meeting location: 9880 Campus Pointe Drive, third floor, from 5PM to 8PM, on March 12 . We’ll use the patio area outside. This has the additional advantage of providing an outdoor, but covered, voting location in case of rain. Thanks to Alexandria for this multi-purpose location.

All current members of the University Community are eligible to vote for candidates of their membership type (residential or business) in the district where they reside. Any member of the community who is not yet a UCPG member may sign up and vote in person on March 12, 2024, between 5PM and 8PM at 9880 Campus Point Drive.
