     The right to vote for your officers for the upcoming year 2019 is a very important event. Every member of Boumi Shriners in good standing has the right to vote for the noble he feels would best serve as an officer of Boumi Shriners. Every noble in good standing also has the right to run for an elective position on the Divan line or for an open Financial Advisor seat.

We encourage you to exercise your right to vote.

Boumi Elections

A noble may be nominated from the floor on election night, therefore an application is not required to run for an elective position. However, nobles who submit a form prior to the deadline will be included on a candidate list provided on election night.
