· Members can also vote by proxy (authorizing another member to vote for you)

o Find someone who will be going to church to vote in person and is willing to vote on your behalf.  Tell this person how to vote for you.

o Send an email to the CC Secretary joe@cheninfo.com (for English Congregation) or James Liu at (919) 724-3593 (for Chinese Congregation) or Kurt Leung kurtpik@gmail.com (for Cantonese Congregation) telling him whom you have appointed to be your proxy.

o Send a copy of the above email to your proxy who should print it out and hand it in when voting in person.  The proxy will be given a ballot to vote on your behalf.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What will happen at the Dec 6th meeting?

The meeting will take place in Zoom at 1pm after the voting has closed. The meeting’s main purpose is to determine and announce whether quorum has been met and to update the Church on ministry reports. Voting needs to be closed before the meeting in order to determine the exact number of people who have received a ballot.

How is a quorum determined?

A quorum shall be established when the distributed ballots, including the absentee ballots, exceeds the simple majority of the active church membership. (ByLaws 2.4)

法定人數
會員大會之法定人數是以分發的投票數,包括缺席票,超過全體活動會員之半數以上而成立。(附則第二章第四條)

What if quorum is not reached?

2.4 Quorum
A quorum shall be established when the distributed ballots, including the absentee ballots, exceeds the simple majority of the active church membership. If a quorum is not formed, the meeting may adjourn to a later date. Notice of the adjournment shall be announced and posted on the intervening Sundays. The regular members present at the subsequent meeting, called within four weeks of the adjourned meeting, shall constitute a quorum. If there are legitimate reasons for not being able to be present, a member may vote via signed absentee vote.
Except as specified throughout the Constitution, a minimum of 75% congregational approval is required for the passage of any matter under consideration before the membership.

第四條:法定人數
會員大會之法定出席人數是以分發的投票數,包括缺席票,超過全體活動會員之半數以上而成立。如不足法定人數時,大會可延期再舉行。該延期之通告當在每主日中公佈周知。第二次會議於四週內舉行,出席會議的正式會員即為法定人數。會員因正當理由,無法參加會議,可事先領取缺席票投票。

除非在教會憲章中有特別記載,所有會員大會的提案通過,需要有超過百分之七十五法定出席人數的贊成票。

Can I take the ballot home?

No. Members must vote after picking up the ballot. Voters are not allowed to carry the ballot to home or to leave the church building before they vote.

Proxy Voting – Does my proxy need to be a member?

No. The main requirement is you need to contact Joe Chen (joe@cheninfo.com) to designate who is allowed to be your proxy.
