In this email you will find Key Election Rules, Ballot Request Procedures & Key Dates.
Please circulate to your supporters. Please emphasize that if they have submitted a Ballot Request form they will get a ballot. Do Not Resubmit. However, a few people I have noticed submitted a ballot request form without indicating that they request a paper ballot – only indicating that they have not received a ballot. When receiving the e-ballot they are angry and state they want a paper ballot. I have no way of knowing that they want a paper ballot if they do not select the paper ballot option. Please emphasize this.
Key Election Rules
