How to Vote

In-person, proxy, and online: please read carefully

There are three ways to vote in Vecinos elections:

1. In-person voting at the meeting. Members who sign into the meeting and are current on their dues will receive a paper ballot which they may complete and turn in at the meeting to be counted.

2. Proxy voting at the meeting. Members who are unable to attend the meeting in person or online may designate another member to vote in their place. The proxy form (available for download by clicking here) must be completed and signed by the member who cannot attend and submitted either by email to Jon Kantor, Director of Elections,  at, or in person by the proxy-holder before the meeting begins. 

3. Online voting. Vecinos uses an online voting system called ElectionBuddy. Each member who is eligible will receive an invitation to vote online at the email address they registered with Vecinos. If you do not receive an email invitation by February 20, please check your junk folder or contact Jon Kantor, Director of Elections, at The invitation will include a unique key giving you access to the Vecinos ballot. Voting will be open from 10:00 a.m. Akumal time on February 22 to 3:00 p.m. Akumal time on February 22. 

When you click the key in the ElectionBuddy email invitation during the period when online voting is open, your ballot will open. Candidate names will have circles next to them. You may click the circle next to the name of candidate(s) for whom you are voting, When you have completed the form, click Submit and your vote will be recorded. 


  • You can join the Zoom meeting starting at 10:30 a.m. Akumal time on February 22 by clicking here. If there is no quorum at the 10:30 a.m. meeting, there will be a second meeting at 11:00 a.m. using the same link.
  • You must make your presence known to the Zoom meeting host while the official meeting is in progress, starting at 10:30 if there is a quorum or 11:00 if there is not. If you do not do this, you will be deemed to have been absent from the meeting and your online vote will be invalid under Vecinos bylaws. 
  • If you vote in person or by proxy at the meeting and you also vote online, your online vote will be discarded.
  • If you have given your proxy to a proxy-holder to vote for you and would prefer to cast your own vote, send an email to the proxy-holder with cc to Jon Kantor, Director of Elections, at, before the start of the meeting stating that you are cancelling your proxy.
