About the election

The election was held May 20 to June 17, 2019, to select two employees (active UCRP members or active Savings Choice participants who are not members of the Academic Senate) to the UCRS Advisory Board. All active UCRP members and active Savings Choice Participants (including new Eligible Employees who are in their initial 90-day window period during which they select either UCRP/Pension Choice or Savings Choice) who are not members of the Academic Senate are eligible to vote. The elected UCRS board members will serve from July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2023.

The deadline for submission of nomination materials was May 1, 2019.

Qualifying candidates were notified by May 13, 2019, and announced to the University community prior to the voting period, which runs from May 20, 2019, to 5 p.m. PT on June 17, 2019. 

The voting process was administered by Election-America, a third-party vendor. Employees eligible to vote received an email at their UC email address with a personal identification number (PIN) and a direct link to the Election-America voting site. Eligible voters who did not have a UC email address were mailed a ballot and candidate statements. These voters could then choose to vote electronically from a home computer (or computer at UC libraries, Benefits Offices, etc.) or mail the paper ballot directly to Election-America.
