For the first time this year, GICCA will welcome two associate board member positions open to Guemes residents under 18 years of age. We look forward to the new perspectives they will bring to the board. The two candidates for the two associate positions are:
GICCA has two types of members: “Statutory” members, who are all Guemes Island residents and property owners aged eighteen or older, and “Associate” members, who are under 18. Statutory members will vote to fill five open positions on the GICCA Board and two Associate Member Board positions.
Voting has two steps. First membership is verified, and then a ballot is provided to be filled out. Membership is verified by either by checking the Skagit County Tax Assessor roll or presentation of any official document with the person’s name and address on Guemes Island such as, but not limited to: driver’s license, car registration, utility bill, or rent receipt. If your membership was verified at a business meeting during the year and you were given a membership card, you can present that card.
If you email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, we can provide an absentee ballot for anyone who is not on the island during scheduled voting times. Absentee ballots need to be RECEIVED by November 30.
Voters may vote for up to FIVE candidates for Board and may vote for up to TWO Associate Members.
Ballots will be counted during the November 2023 Annual Meeting and the winning candidates will be announced at the meeting.
