    Get ready for NACo Annual Business Meeting, election

    NACo’s 2022 annual business meeting and election will be held in-person in Adams County, Colo. Sunday, July 24. During the meeting, credentialed NACo members elect NACo officers, set our national policy agenda and conduct other association business.

    Voting credentials verify a member county, parish or borough’s eligibility to vote and the number of votes they can cast at the meeting. To be eligible to vote, NACo members should:

    • Register for the 2022 Annual Conference
    • Pay 2022 NACo membership dues in full, and
    • Designate one voting delegate by Monday, July 18, 2022 at 5 p.m. EDT.

    To facilitate the voting process, members should authorize only one primary voting delegate per county and must provide the cell phone number of the voting delegate.

    The county’s chief elected official, clerk to the county board and conference registrants can visit NACo.org/VotingCredentials to appoint their primary delegate or proxy online. A proxy voter can be another county attendee from the same state or your state association of counties.

    Paper voting credential forms will not be mailed to member counties but can be accessed electronically by visiting NACo.org/VotingCredentials.

    A member’s vote total is determined by the amount of dues paid and dues are based on the population of the 2010 census.

    Every county receives one vote and is allotted an additional vote for each $1,200 paid in dues.

    Counties with dues of $450 to $1,199 receive one vote

    Counties with dues of $1,200 to $2,399 receive two votes

    Counties with dues of $2,400 to $3,599 receive three votes, and so on

    The maximum number of votes a county can receive is 51

    NACo’s Credentials Committee ensures that the process for the Annual Business Meeting is fair and transparent.

    The committee guides the credentials process, resolves any credentials disputes and assists during the election itself.

    The 2022 Credentials Committee members are:  

    • Melissa Cribbins, commissioner, Coos County, Ore.(chair)
    • Alysoun McLaughlin, deputy election director, Montgomery County, Md. (member)
    • Felicia Franklin, commissioner, Clayton County, Ga. (member)
    • Craig Rice, councilmember, Montgomery County, Md. (reading clerk)
    • Karen Digh-Allen, public administrator, Callaway County, Mo. (tally clerk)

    NACo members will receive additional information on credentials and appointing a delegate by mail and email in June.
