On January 15-16, 2022, the Board of Directors voted to begin the process for the special election for the position of President. In doing so, the Board of Directors set a cutoff date of April 1, 2022 for all nominating petitions to be received and verified by USPSA in order to be considered a candidate.
This cutoff date is the basis for all subsequent due dates for candidate information submission and for the upcoming voting period. Candidate biography’s, a Q&A document, and other information helpful to voters can be found at https://uspsa.org/elections .
USPSA’s election provider, YesElections, powered by Election America, will begin distributing voting credentials for all eligible voters.
