The total number of ballots received was 1,122. However, there were 153 ballots rejected because (1) there was no return address on the envelope and no identifying information inside the envelope, so there way no way to know who mailed those ballots or (2) they were postmarked after the postmark deadline of March 16, 2018. Voting was limited to members in good standing (meaning dues paid up as of the date of December 31, 2017.
The ballots were counted by Jerry Coffee, Martha O’Connell, Glenna Howcroft, Gary Smith, Judy Smith, and our Corporate Attorney, Bruce Stanton. Jerry and Martha met for the first time as ballot observers for, respectively, the Presidential Candidates Mary Jo Baretich and Michelle Smith.
