AAUW-PA 2016 Election Voting Instructions
Rosemary Baker, AAUW-PA Nominations Chair
If you are coming to the Tannersville Annual Meeting, you will vote there. Otherwise vote via either of the options below.
OPTION 1: ONLINE VOTING—
Instructions: Click on the link https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/AAUWelection2016 or paste into your browser. Online voting is available now through midnight, April 8, 2015. Clicking this link will bring up an initial screen that will include instructions and three boxes asking for voting confirmation information: 1) first name; 2) last name; and 3) branch. This information will not be connected to your vote. Voter names and branch affiliation are required only to verify that you are 1) a current paid AAUW-PA member and 2) that you are not voting multiple times.
Clicking the “next” box on screen one will bring up the actual ballot. It looks exactly like the paper ballot that includes the titles of each office—President and Program VP, the two candidates’ names; and an option for a write-in.
Branches may facilitate online voting at a branch meeting. It requires only a computer, a site with internet access, and a degree of voting privacy.
OPTION 2: PAPER BALLOT VOTING
INSTRUCTIONS: Clip out and return the official ballot (on page 4) and return to your branch president or to the Nominations Chair by mail. To be valid and counted, mailed ballots must be received no later than Friday, April 8, 2015, by Rosemary Baker at the address below. Voting instructions must be completed exactly as required in order for your ballot to be valid. Please ask for clarification from your branch officers or from AAUW-PA officers before voting if you have any questions or concerns about the appropriate way to file your ballot.
Read the information about the nominees on page 2 and make your choice for each office. Mark an “X” in the blank provided on the ballot. Fold and insert the completed ballot into a small (4” x 6” or similar) envelope. Do not place any writing or marks on this envelope.
Insert the blank envelope, containing the ballot, into a larger (#10 or similar) envelope. Do not write on or put a mark of any kind on this envelope; it must be blank. Seal the envelope and, on the reverse or flap side of this envelope, do the following:
PRINT legibly your name as it appears in AAUW membership records so that the Nominations and Elections Committee can locate it in our membership files.
SIGN your name as you normally would, below your printed name.
PRINT the name of your branch –or— if you are not a member of any particular branch, PRINT the letters “MAL” below your signature.
FILE your ballot either by returning it to your branch president to bulk mail, or by mailing it yourself.
If mailing your ballot yourself, please send it to: Rosemary Baker, AAUW-PA Nominations, 2625 Anthony Court, Easton, PA 18045.
