Election Supervisor Approves Process for On Line Petition Signatures

Today the Election Supervisor for the IBT election approved a system for candidates and slates to obtain Accreditation Petition Signatures on-line. The on-line system is not yet operative, but is expected to be operational with the next several days.

The Election Supervisor announced this addition to the Election Rules in response to COVID-19’s impact on person-to-person contact.

The Teamster-to-Teamster petitioning by O’Brien Zuckerman Teamsters United volunteers continues at full-speed across North America. 

The campaign will compile the signatures in mid-August and deliver them to the Election Supervisor in Washington DC in late August.

This Advisory details the required number of verified signatures in each region for a slate to get accredited. Those numbers can be reached by adding together the paper petition signatures and the on-line ones.
