Election by Mail

When travel makes meeting impractical, or the majority of leagues are not present for the meeting, Little League will conduct the election by mail.

Appointment by Headquarters

When neither of the above procedures result in a league election, Little League International reserves the right to appoint a District Administrator. This is also the case when the unexpired term for a District Administrator must be filled. Headquarters, at its discretion, may conduct an election to fill the unexpired term, or may appoint a successor to fill the balance of the term.
