Voting Delegate Information
Voting Delegate Allocation:
Each chartered DECA chapter shall not have more than two official votes, which shall be cast by
the voting delegates present. (NOTE: In the event only one delegate represents a chapter, only
one vote may be cast. When no delegates are present, the chapter forfeits the right to vote on
all matters presented during that meeting.)
Voting Delegate Responsibilities:
Voting Delegates play an important and vital role in the election of the State Executive Council.
Therefore, it is crucial that all voting delegates including Alternate Voting Delegates understand
and agree to fulfill the following responsibilities.
Specifically, voting delegates will…
- Read the SEC handbook thoroughly; ask questions as necessary, and abide by all
- Attend all campaign and election sessions and encourage others to attend:
o Campaign Rally
o Business Meeting
- Vote promptly during the scheduled voting window.
- Be prepared with charged, electronic devices (cell phones, tablets, etc.) with cellular
data access for electronic voting.
Election/Voting Delegate Procedures:
Voting delegates will hear speeches on February 10th. Voting delegates must also
visit the Virtual Campaign Booths to meet and talk to the candidates.
Voting delegates will then attend a meeting exclusively for voting delegates. In this meeting,
votes will be cast for the State Executive Council electronically.
Voting delegates will be required to login in to the official voting portal on there own during the voting window.
2021 CDC Voting Delegates will be able to vote for the 2021-2022 State Executive Council and on two bylaw proposals. Chapters will be responsible for arranging their own caucusing meetings whether safely in person or virtual. Oklahoma DECA will not provide a virtual platform for chapter caucusing.
