Template for Digital Council Elections


Hi friends and colleagues,

I was tasked this spring with putting together an online form for voting (or affirming) new leadership to council while social distancing. You'll see below a link to the template. 

If you would like to take this model and adapt it to your use, please send me an email, and I can send you the template. Hope it helps, and please, pardon the silly pictures :)

I'd love to hear any advice or stories you have about leadership transition while social distancing!

Take care,

Steve: How does your church deal with elections for congregants who do not have online access?




Hi Kathryn!


Great to hear from you. Our admin assistant called members who don't have internet access. It's a fairly small number in our context, so it worked well.

Thanks Steve. Best wishes!

Thank you for sharing this Steve! (Psst. He's one of our cherished Board Members currently!) Very helpful and something churches can adapt to make it appropriate for their own context. As Kathryn mentioned, could you share how you are soliciting votes from those without or with limited technology?

Hi Steve.  
Our administrative council is interested in the template you have created.  Would you mind forwarding to me. 
Thank you, in advance.
