AAHOA Elections: How to Vote

Your participation in AAHOA’s democratic elections process is fundamental to AAHOA and has an incredible impact on our organization. We thank you in advance for your interest and commitment to casting your ballots. Below and via the new infographic, you can find a complete summary and step-by-step process about this year's elections and voting.



Let’s Get Started

Now Through March 22


First, ensure you’re eligible to vote. You can check your voter eligibility status in using the MyBallot feature.

How? Sign into, and click on “MyBallot” in the top menu. Scroll to the bottom of the page to see your eligibility status on the right.


Update your email address and mobile phone number in MyAAHOA. You’ll need a unique email address and mobile phone number in MyAAHOA, which means NO sharing of email addresses or mobile phone numbers between businesses or families.


The next step is to download the Voatz app to your smartphone.

Visit for quick access to app-store links right at the top of the page or search for “Voatz” in your app store.

Note: For those who have previously used Voatz, please use the same account information and don't try to create multiple Voatz accounts. 


What Happens Next?

Credentialing: March 22 - April 7


With the app downloaded, now you're ready to begin the credentialing process. This process confirms your identity and begins on March 22 and closes on April 7. This 17-day window is the ONLY opportunity you’ll have to complete this important step.

Important! If you do NOT complete the credentialing process within the specified timeframe, you WILL NOT be able to participate in the 2023 AAHOA Elections.


It's March 22 through April 7! Let's complete the credentialing process within the Voatz app. To get started, visit and click on "Voter Guide" in the top menu. This document will take you through all the steps needed to set up the app, confirm your identity, and get you ready to cast your ballot.

Note: Only one voter per smart device. No sharing of devices is allowed. 


The last step in the credentialing process is for you to receive a confirmation in the Voatz app that you're verified. 

Again, you must complete this credentialing process between March 22 and April 7.

Once you receive this confirmation within that 17-day window, you're ready to vote on April 13!

What Comes After Credentialing?

April 8 - April 13


The last step is to ensure you review the candidates and positions in advance. Get familiar with the candidates so you’re ready to cast your ballot on Thursday, April 13.

Note: Your ballot will contain the candidates running for national positions and any regional position serving your area.


If you’ll be joining us in Los Angeles, attend the General Session on Thursday to hear candidate speeches.

Each candidate will have an opportunity to speak to eligible voters, and there will be a Secretary debate during General Session, which begins at 9 a.m. on Thursday, April 13. AAHOA Elections candidate speeches will also be live-streamed from AAHOA’s YouTube Channel


Last step! Use the Voatz app on your unique smart device to cast your ballot during these specified timeframes:

Official Voting Hours
Thursday, April 13, 2023
12 noon* - 7 p.m. PDT

*Pursuant to AAHOA Policy 12.06(e)(ii), polls will open immediately following the Secretary debate, and times published are approximate. Tune in to the debate LIVE on AAHOA's YouTube channel or attend in person at the Los Angeles Convention Center, and be prepared to cast your ballot immediately after the debate concludes.  

Reminder: Only ONE user per smart device, which means no sharing of devices. There will be no devices on-site in Los Angeles to cast your ballots. Voters must use their own device.
