Hello 4H Clubs!
This site is a virtual version of our clubs annual elections and polling.
The recent outbreak of the COVID-19 virus has disrupted many regular 4-H activities and
events, including the club elections for positions in the 2020-2021 4-H year. We have developed this virtual election platform so that all 4-H clubs can adopt it for their club general elections. This website allows clubs to accomplish virtual nominations and voting that enables kids to participate in the annual club election during COVID-19 restrictions. The coronavirus outbreak should not stop 4-H'ers from developing sparks in leadership through club officer positions. Independence 4-H started this website, but we want to extend it to all of Sonoma County by making it available to clubs in our county who want to use this platform for their club elections.
