OQHA Annual Board Elections

The Ohio Quarter Horse Association will once again utilize electronic balloting for the 2024 Open, Amateur, and Youth elections. The use of Election Buddy gives OQHA the opportunity to streamline a process that previously required more time and expense for both the association and its members. Members will receive a link, associated with their OQHA membership, via email and text message, allowing members to choose their most convenient option. The automated system will only allow members to submit one ballot per OQHA membership number.

OQHA must have a valid email and mobile number on file for each member in order for the system to function properly. In addition, many OQHA memberships are family memberships and only have one email and/or phone number on file. Each eligible family member is able to vote, however OQHA must provide Election Buddy with valid email and mobile numbers for each family member. Please contact the OQHA office to update your or your family's contact information. If you do not receive a ballot, please contact the OQHA office to ensure your contact information is correct and up-to-date.

Paper ballots are still an option, and available upon request for members who prefer that option.

Look for your election ballot in your inbox in early January. Votes must be cast by Wednesday, January 24 at 5pm EST.

If you did not receive your ballot, please contact the OQHA office to verify your contact information by calling 614-505-7200 or emailing dgorman@oqha.com
