Special Election

BMES Special Election
Please vote between 8/23-9/3

The BMES Board of Directors is committed to ensuring that our election processes are transparent and allows all qualified nominees the opportunity to lead. As a result, we are holding a special election for two positions within BMES that were not decided in the spring election. For this special election, the Board of Directors established criteria based on a history of membership and participation with BMES and effective service as a volunteer. All nominees from the spring election that met these criteria were invited to be on the ballot. All candidates on the final ballot consented to run for office and provided their election materials by the stated deadline. Please see below for the new criteria.

​The special election will open on August 23 and close on September 3.
