Deadline Nears for 2019 Board Election Nominations

" "

If you’re a retired CalPERS member and aspire to be a member of your board of administration, you have two weeks to complete the nomination process to become a candidate.

Nomination petitions for the retired member election with required signatures, as well as candidate statements and the nomination acceptance/ballot designation form, are due by 5 p.m. on May 16. The candidate statement addenda are due by June 3.

If you’re a retired CalPERS member, watch your mailbox for your ballot package. Ballots will be mailed August 30, and we must receive your vote by September 30 to be counted.

Votes will be processed beginning October 1. A runoff election may be held if no candidate receives the majority of votes cast. Voting online, by phone, and by mail will be available to all eligible retired members.

To ensure you receive your ballot, please verify your address by logging into my|CalPERS or by calling us at 888 CalPERS (or 888-225-7377).

Although the incumbent represents all CalPERS members, only retired members are eligible to vote in this election.

Information on the upcoming board election and resources for members and candidates is available on our Board Elections webpage.
