On Sunday, January 29th, the Cornerstone congregation will be invited to vote on church matters outlined below. If you will be unable to attend, please submit your vote using the absentee ballot linked at the end of this article, even if you aren’t sure whether you are a partner or not. (Technically, only active partners can vote in elections but we would appreciate your participation in any case, and we will check your partner status when the votes are counted.)
Absentee ballots must be submitted no less than 24 hours before the annual meeting; the deadline is January 28th at 9:30 AM.
Here’s a summary of the ballot. (If you don’t need a summary, you can go straight to the absentee ballot.)

You will be given the opportunity to vote on each one, individually. The current slate of officers includes:
CONSTITUTION CHANGES: any and all changes to the constitution of Cornerstone church must be approved by a 2/3 majority of the partners. This year’s changes are detailed in a separate page (here). Please review them before voting. You may wish to keep the page open in a separate tab as you vote.
