Our Board of Directors
Democracy Without Elections is structured to ensure transparency, equity, inclusiveness, accountability, responsiveness, empowerment, and broad based participation.
Our organization is governed by a Board of Directors which is selected by a democratic lottery (sortition). The goals and objectives established by the Board are implemented through a Committee structure. The organization is managed on a daily basis by two Officers who are not Directors, an Executive Director and a Treasurer.
Our Board is comprised of up to nine directors who serve staggered 18 month terms. Once a Director’s term expires, they are ineligible to be selected again until they sit out one term. Every six months a lottery is held to select new Directors to replace those who have rotated off the Board.
