Upcoming Board Member Elections (Active City General and Fire Safety)

Date: Dec 22, 2020


SDCERS' two active General Board Members (Thomas Battaglia and Jeffrey Wallace) and active Fire Safety Board Member (Michael McBride) will complete their four-year term on SDCERS' Board of Administration on March 31, 2021. Therefore, SDCERS will be holding elections to fill these soon-to-be vacated seats. All active City General and Fire Safety Members are eligible to nominate a candidate for their respective representative on SDCERS' Board. If you are in one of these membership classifications, you should have received a letter containing a unique validation number and explaining the nominations process. Please retain this letter, as you will need your unique validation number in order to submit a nomination or sign an existing nominee's petition. 

In order for a nominee to be eligible for the open position, they must receive at least 10 signatures on their nomination petition. You can submit a self-nomination or sign a petition online through the following website: https://vote.escvote.com/SDCERS/

If you lost your letter or have any questions about the nomination process, please email SDCERShelp@electionservicescorp.com or call 1-866-720-4357, Monday – Friday, 6:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. PST. 

All nominations must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. PST on January 6, 2021. At that time, if there is only one nominee for each open seat, an election will not be necessary. If there are competing nominations, then we will proceed with elections and you will receive another letter with further instructions if you are eligible to vote in the election.
