Absentee Ballot Information

It is vital in the election process for VSLL to have a quorum ATTEND the Annual Meeting and Election on August 9th. At this time, a quorum is OVER 60 attendees. We understand that every member's attendance is not possible, so Absentee Ballots are available if you CANNOT attend. If you cannot attend the annual meeting and are a member, you may request an absentee ballot from Secretary Lorena Brown.
She will have ballots available during Membership Sign-Ups on July 27th and July 31st.
Ballots MUST be picked up and returned by the voting member (example: a husband cannot pick up a ballot for himself and his wife. Both individuals, if members, must sign for their own ballots). 
You will be required to sign out your ballot and sign it back in when returned.
The ballots must be in a sealed envelope with your signature on the seal of the envelope.
Ballots MUST be returned by Friday, August 7th between 6:00 - 8:30 pm.
