Votes may be cast in one of two ways – either by mail or in person on the day of the election as follows:
VOTING BY MAIL:
All mail-in ballots shall be mailed to the post office box noted on the ballot. The Election Committee Chairperson will check the post office box for the final time by 4:00 p.m. on the day of the election. Ballots received after this time will not be counted. Mailed ballots must be in a sealed envelope with the voter’s name and address on the outside of the envelope in order to be counted. Ballots in the envelope must be from a single address.
VOTING IN PERSON:
In-person voting shall be done on the designated election day only from 6:00-6:30 p.m. Those in line before 6:30 p.m. will be allowed to vote. The Vice President will be present during the voting period and throughout the following meeting. If he or she is unable to perform this task, then the board’s Treasurer shall do so. Should a member be unable to attend the voting meeting, a fellow member may deliver that member’s completed ballot (in a sealed envelope with the voter’s name and address) on his or her behalf.
Votes will then be counted and the results announced at the March Association meeting pursuant to the Association bylaws.
