Voter Validation Process FAQs

Important Notice: All validated International Code Council governmental member voting representatives (GMVRs) now remain active for the course of a three-year code development cycle. Any credentials validated and approved on or after January 1, 2024, are active through December 31, 2026, as long as the governmental member account is kept fully paid and current.* The primary contact may edit the voting roster during indicated times throughout the cycle. If no changes occur to an approved voter’s status, the credentials do not need to be revalidated until the next code development cycle.

New or revised applications for voting representatives must be submitted 30 days prior to a voting event (committee action hearings, public comment hearings, or Annual Business Meeting) in order to be eligible to vote at that event.

*Consider purchasing a three-year governmental membership. Contact Member Services at 888-422-7233 x33804 to extend your current Membership account.

Why do we have an updated voter validation process?

  • The Code Council Board of Directors instituted an electronic voter validation system to further enhance the code development process.
  • This online tool documents essential information about governmental member voting representatives (GMVRs) in order to maintain the Code Council’s commitment to transparency and integrity in the voting process.
  • Collecting more information about GMVRs:
    • Enhances public confidence that only eligible voters are voting.
    • Expedites the voter validation process.
    • Enables the Code Council to more readily resolve eligibility questions that are raised by stakeholders.
