Elections + Voting

The Council of Magickal Arts, Inc. determines who holds various positions throughout the organization, such as the Board of Directors, through a membership election process.

Elections occur twice a year: during the Beltane and Samhain Great Works Meetings.

Ballots are collected both in-person and online, and each current member of CMA in good standing is eligible to cast one vote on each candidate or ballot item. Proxies may be assigned, as needed, and voting proxies shall only last for the duration of the one Great Works meeting for which they are created.

Only current members of CMA may vote or run for elected office.
