Number of voters and signatures announced
Elections will be held on Sunday 13 June
How much will the elections cost?


  1. note:

    - the candidates have eight days to collect 2.095 signatures of club members (17-25 may)

    - from 25 may to 1 june the signatures are checked

    - at the latest on 25 may, the directors who will take part in the elections have to resign

  2. hmm.. no calendar girls this time ?

  3. we don't want to become predictable, kamikaze... :-)

  4. does the electoral roll mean the list of qualified voters? and also, not saying its gonna happen but what if theres only one candidate that makes the signatures cut? is this the scenario people were thinking about when it was reported a few weeks back that there could be no elections?


  5. indeed. the electoral role is the list of all voters (basically club members, older than 18, more than 1 year membership). and we'll guide you through the process as we go through the stages :-)

    yes, indeed. if there's only one candidate there won't be elections. this was the case in 2006, when laporta was the only one to get the signatures.

  6. How do they get the signatures from the socios in the first place though? Do they have access to the names and addresses?

  7. no, they can only hope the members come to them and check the memberships cards.

    that's why most candidates don't agree that they cannot already collect signatures at the last home game against valladolid (probably on sunday 16 may).

    there you'd have a lot of club members at one place, so you could already collect a big number of signatures without having to go out there looking for the members or hoping they will come to your campaign seat.
