USA Ultimate announced today that voting has opened in the election for three available seats on its 2021-2023 Board of Directors.

Six candidates — DeAnna Ball, Matt Bishop, Isaiah “Izzy” Bryant, Paul Sandoval, Henry Thorne, and Ernest Toney — are running for two at-large seats, while Robyn Fennig runs uncontested for one elite athlete seat.

While the general membership can vote in the at-large seat election, only elite athletes — those who have represented the United States at a World Championship event within the last ten years, finished in the top half of Nationals within the last two years, or been a member of a National Team within the last two years — can vote in the elite athlete seat election.

Under the “Meet the Candidates” heading on USAU’s announcement page, you can read questions and answers from the candidates on the experience and vision they would bring to the board, as well as brief statements from each on why they feel they are a strong choice at this time.

Voting is open through Wednesday, December 23rd. To vote, log in to your USAU account, click on the “Voting” icon, and follow the instructions on the site.
