State HoD Delegate Election Report Forms

Local Delegate Election Reports must be received at TSTA HQ by March 15. A confirmation receipt will be issued for all submissions. Any submission that arrives after March 15 must be accompanied by a letter from the local president to explain why it is late. Any submission presented after April 1st automatically goes to credentials. As always, the Center for Executive and Governance will look up membership information for each delegate and work with the local president to make sure that the local’s delegate election report is complete and complies with TSTA Election policies.

Please email all forms to elections@tsta.org
Local Delegate Election reports may be submitted as noted below:

If your local has 15 or fewer delegates and elected 15 or fewer alternates, you may submit their information using the e-form links below. The first link includes certification and delegate information. The second link, alternate information. To enter delegate or alternate information on the e-forms, you only need to enter their name and one piece of identifying information — either their membership ID or the first line of their street address. You can also upload the tally in the e-forms. If your local has more than 15 delegates and/or elected more than 15 alternates, you may submit their information using this excel spreadsheet. If you use the spreadsheet, in addition to listing names, there is a tab for certification information so you can certify in the same document. We have also added a counts column so you can use the delegate listing as a tally sheet if desired, but you are not required to fill this part out and are welcome to send us the tally in whatever manner is convenient to you.
