TO: All Interested Parties
FROM: L. Joy Williams, National Election Supervisor
DATE: September 22, 2015
RE: Election Calendar Updated

As previously noted in my last update “Mailing of the Election Materials Delayed”, the ballot mailing for the upcoming Local Station Board Elections was delayed due to the stations not having the necessary funding for printing and postage.

I received an update on when the Pacifica stations would be able to provide the funding to move forward and after coordination and input from the Local Election Supervisors and the participating vendors, I have updated the remainder of the election calendar below.

Voter Date of Record – August 17, 2015

The voter date of record, the date by which listeners must be members of a Pacifica station in order to be eligible to vote, is now August 17, 2015. I have sent a request to each station to provide me with an updated Listener-Sponsor member list based on this new date and will have updated figures on station member numbers once I have received and processed the information.

Voting Period – October 15, 2015 thru December 4, 2015

On October 15, 2015, ballots will be in the mail and online voting will open. Online voting will end and ballots will need to be returned by December 4, 2015.

Election Results

Providing that no station will need to extend their voting period due to not meeting the required quorum, the election results will be certified on or before December 19, 2015.

Both myself and the Local Election Supervisors will be hard at work over the next two weeks finalizing the materials for the ballot mailing so please exercise patience if our response time is slower than normal.

If you have any questions, please post them below and we will do our best to answer them in a timely fashion.

So, what do you think ?
