A post card will immediately be sent to all active and retired members explaining the change of date and that all ballots are due Tuesday, April 11, 2017 with the ballot count to be held on Wednesday, April 12, 2017.
The ballots WILL NOT be reprinted with the new dates, please return your original ballot through the US Mail as you normally would. Again, ballots are due back on Tuesday, April 11, 2017.
It is of paramount importance that all active and retired members have the opportunity to cast their ballots with ample time to have those ballots returned and counted. This was the sole reason why the election date was changed. Thank you for your understanding.
