Youth councils, high school chapters, and college chapters are as strong as those who step up to lead them. Each year, NAACP units host elections to choose new leaders to guide the work and training of its members. All elections must be held between March 1st and April 15th of each year.

Election Procedures Manual for Youth & College Units details everything you need to elect unit leadership, including:

  • How to nominate a candidate
  • Who can serve and vote
  • Election day procedures and sample ballot
  • A suggested installation oath
  • How to handle contested results
