VOTING REQUIREMENTS FOR 2016 SELECTION
CENTRAL SAN PEDRO NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL
(Revised 6/7/16 by request of Department of Neighborhood Empowerment)
In order to vote in the Central San Pedro Neighborhood Council, you must be a stakeholder 14 years of age or older. A stakeholder is defined as: those who live, work or own real property in the neighborhood and also those who declare a stake in the neighborhood as a community interest stakeholder, defined as a person who affirms a substantial and ongoing participation within the Neighborhood Council’s boundaries and who may be in a community organization such as, but not limited to, educational, non-profit and/or religious organizations.
Print out the registration form here, fill it out and bring it to the polls (registration forms also available at the polls).
Per the Central SPNC bylaws, “Verification of stakeholder status by those who vote in Governing Board s/elections shall be by written self-affirmation.” This means that you are affirming your stakeholder status in writing on the registration form which you are signing under penalty of perjury.
