International Convention Voting FAQs

LCICon 2022 Montréal is happening June 24-28. Want to know more about the International Election at convention? Read through these frequently asked questions.


1. Who can vote?
Every Lions club in good standing can participate in the election of executive officers and international directors, and can vote on amendments to the association’s by-laws by assigning delegates to represent the club at the international convention.

2. How should “good standing” be determined?
For a Lions club to be considered in “good standing” and eligible for delegates during the International Convention, the Lions club must not be in status quo or financial suspension, and must have:

  • District (Single, Sub-and Multiple) dues and fees paid in full; and
  • No unpaid balance of International dues and fees greater than US$10; and
  • No unpaid Lions Club International account balance greater than US$50, outstanding ninety (90) days or more.

3. How can I become my club’s delegate?

Club delegates for the International Convention of Lions Clubs can be assigned by the club president or secretary, using MyLCI from January 1st.

4. Where can I find my member number?
Your club secretary can retrieve your Member ID from MyLCI or from the club’s semi-annual dues billing statement.

5. I see that we are assigning our delegates through MyLCI. What happens if I need to change the delegate after the June 22nd date?
A new delegate can be assigned in the Voting Area at the Palais des congrès de Montréal Exhibit Hall. The new delegate will need to be accompanied by an authorized club officer* or district officer* and both the delegate and officer will need to provide a government-issued photo ID.

6. How many delegates are allowed for my club?
Each club is allowed one delegate for every 25 members or major fraction thereof. See Appendix A (below) for the delegate limits. Note that MyLCI will inform you when the maximum number or delegates are reached for your club.

7. Can I assign a delegate by mail?
No, assignment of the delegates will be performed electronically, so there is no need to mail in a form. You may assign delegates electronically using MyLCI at any time between January 1, 2022 and June 22, 2022 at 23:59 U.S. Central Daylight Time.

8. Is there a spoiled ballot system?
No, the voting system will not allow you to change a vote once you have submitted it. The voting system allows you to preview the ballot before submitting, so you may verify all your selections before submitting.

9. Is there an alternate for a club delegate?
A replacement delegate can be assigned in the Voting Area at the Palais des congrès de Montréal Exhibit Hall. The new delegate will need to be accompanied by an authorized club officer* or district officer** and both the delegate and officer will need to provide a government-issued photo ID.

10. Will I have the opportunity to attend the Business Session?
Attending the Business Session is recommended to learn more about the official Rules of Procedure, certification of credentials and voting, receive information on amendments to the International Constitution and By-Laws, and hear from candidates. Please reference the schedule in the LCICon 2022 convention system for more information.
