A preliminary ballot is emailed to Private Club Managers that includes all of the Clubs that were previously elected a Platinum Club. In addition, Clubs that received substantial votes in previous elections, and nominated Clubs as approved by the Advisory Board, are included on the Final Ballot.
A Final Ballot is distributed to Private Club Managers along with a second ballot for the Club President or Owner. Voters are requested to use the Seven Platinum Clubs of America Selection Criteria when casting their votes. Ballots are returned to a third party for compilation of the votes and certification.
