The endorsement will now be decided by an online balloting process. Alternates are now upgraded to delegate status and will be able to vote on the endorsement. The SD 62 credentials committee is working with both campaigns to validate contact information of all those who signed up as delegates or alternates. Eligible participants will receive an e-mail with log-in credentials to an online ballot which can be cast during a 10 day period from April 25 until May 4. If you are a delegate and are concerned about the status of your ballot or wish to provide an updated e-mail address, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work with you and the senate district to ensure you are enfranchised.
