Elections are held annually on the second Thursday in March, according to our Bylaws, unless that Thursday is a holiday or election day at the municipal, state or federal level. We will be using this website to disseminate election information. You can expect the first notice of elections to appear on this page in December, the second notice in late January or early February. We will also disseminate election notices and material through the Clarion as well.
Unfortunately, we will not be using election software to support the March 2020 elections to the Board of Directors. There is insufficent use of the website to use it as an effective medium. Election information will continue to be made available on the website.
Blank copies of Intents for Candidacy, Candidate Information Sheets and Proxy Forms can be found on this page.
2019 JOCKEY CLUB ELECTIONS
•As of 03 February 2019, 40 days before the election date of 14 March 2019 (the Annual General Meeting), four candidates had registered with the Jockey Club. With the recent resignation of one Board member, there are four Board vacancies available. Disappointingly, two candidates dropped out upon being informed of their acclamation.
•In accordance with FS 720.306, as the number of candidates is less than the number of positions available there will not be an election in 2019.
•The following candidates have been acclaimed to the Board of Directors:
•David Casarsa – 3 yrs
•Robert W. Iiams – 3 yrs
Congratulations to those acclaimed. There will be a call for nominations from the floor at the Annual General Meeting to fill the remaining two positions on the Board. This is the fourth year in a row that there has been no election.
