Who votes in PACRAT Elections? The clubs must decide on who gets to vote for the club teams. Usually it is the Team Captains, but in cases where there are more teams than votes available, only the number of votes designated for that club may be cast. ALL team captains CAN be there to caucus, but your club can only cast the proper number of votes. The following are the votes allowed per club: Mountain High Snowsport Club, 5 votes; Cascade Ski Club, 3 votes; Skiyente Ski Club, 2 votes; Schnee Vogeli Ski Club, 2 votes; Bergfreunde, 1 vote.
