Additional voting numbers for General Conference elections

4/29/2019

SPRINGFIELD -- 
Annual Conference Secretary Alice Shirley has announced the assignment of voting numbers for additional clergy and the numbers for lay delegate candidates for the 2020 General Conference.

Due to an oversight, numbers were not assigned among clergy for deacons in full connection -- which are eligible for election as a General Conference delegate. The error was discovered last week and Shirley announced those numbers today. In addition, seven probationary elders have also been assigned number pending their election as full members at the 2019 Clergy Session. Upon election, they, too, are eligible to be elected as General Conference delegates.

Among laity, candidates were still completing the application process when printing deadline for the Pre-Conference workbook occurred. In all, 43 lay candidates which met the qualifications will be among the field in which lay members to annual conference will vote. Additional nominations may be made from the floor and upon certifying their eligibility, will be assigned a number for voting.

These numbers will be included in the Voting Guide, a special section for the June 2019 issue of The Current which will be distributed at the laity and clergy sessions. Persons using the Pre-Conference workbook will need to copy these numbers for a complete listing of candidates.
