Sidecarist July/Aug

Got it today. Nothing like the anticipation building.... lol...

Martin did a great job putting together another Sidecarist issue with little material to work with. He could use articles and PHOTOS. Ride reports and new rides acquired make interesting reading material. Your evaluation of rigs and gear are also interesting. Please send what you have to:

Now to vote:

  1. Go to Form on
  2. Find the Welcome menu on the top left
  3. Hit the drop-down menu arrow
  4. Find the "voting" option and click on it. This will take you to the online ballot.
  5. Use the unique Voter ID number printed under your name on the back page of the current Sidecarist. This identifies you as an elgible voting member of USCA. Enter that number in the appropriate box.
  6. VOTE 
  7. Hit SUBMIT and you are done.

CCjon,  thanks for the tutorial, my vote is in...

Jan, the only thing that you left out is that folks should ONLY vote for their own Regional Director.  Some QC ballots that have been examined show that folks have voted for EVERYONE on the ballot.  Since we don't know which region the ballots come from it presents a problem.   The instructions are printed at the top of the form but folks either haven't read them or ignored them. Based on the decision of the Board, those votes may be thrown out. It's not my decision to make.

I noticed the Official Ballot in the Sidecars does not mention that detail either Al, we may just have to accept all votes for all offices.  If ballots are thrown out, can people then re-vote?

A Board decision for sure.


Jan,  I'm willing to take flack for the website but I have nothing to do with Sidecarist content.  I'm not even a proof reader and Martin doesn't answer my emails.  The thing about folks not reading the instructions... I don't have a vote on what ballots to accept or discard.

The on line ballot clearly states at the top to only vote for the candidates in one's own region and even gives an example.
