District Council Members (District Executive Committee Members, Club Presidents and Club Vice Presidents of Education)

You should have received two emails on 5/6/2020 from “District 3 Toastmasters” asking you to register your vote for the district council meeting through electionbuddy.com. The first email includes a link “to vote” along with an access key. Please ignore and disregard the first email because it was sent by mistake. If you already used this email to register successfully and you received a confirmation of your registration, do not worry; you are registered and there is no need for further action. Anyone else who has not successfully completed registration should use the link in the second email sent.

Please note that this registration process is the equivalent of checking in with the credentials desk before a district council meeting. You are registering to vote at the meeting, it is not the official ballot and you are not voting yet. This step prepares the system to receive your official votes during the online district council meeting on May 16th. If you do not register before noon on May 16th, you will not be able to cast any votes during the district council meeting.

Remember to elect your club’s new officers during the month of May and submit them to Toastmasters International through club central no later than June 30th, 2020!

This helpful video from Toastmasters International will walk you through how to update your new officers online: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqKTxHRGFBI.
