Instructions for U. S. Mail Voting:

 

Please read the following instructions carefully before marking and mailing your ballot.

 

  • Mark an “X” or place a “þ” in the box next to the name of the candidates of your choice. Do not place your name, initials, or any other identifying information on the ballot. Ballots containing any identifying information will be voided.
  • Place your marked ballot in the small envelope labeled, “Secret Ballot Envelope” and seal it. Do not write on this envelope. You must use the secret ballot envelope to insure that ballot secrecy is maintained. Failure to use the secret ballot envelope will result in your ballot being voided when the ballots are counted.
  • Insert the sealed secret ballot envelope containing your marked ballot into the return envelope pre-addressed to the Local 529 Election Committee and seal it. Print your name and address in the return address in the return address space on the return ballot envelope. Failure to use the pre-addressed envelope will result in your being voided when the ballots are counted.
  • The number in the lower left corner of the return ballot envelope will be used by the Election Committee for determining voter eligibility at the ballot count. Your vote will remain secret because the secret ballot envelope containing your ballot will be separated from the ballot envelope and mixed with other secret ballot envelopes before it is opened and the ballot counted.
  •  Do not give your ballot to anyone else for mailing. Return mailing envelope must be received through Post Office Box# 828. DO NOT HAND DELIVERED TO THE UNION OFFICE
  • Mail your ballot in sufficient time for it to be received at P.O. Box 828, Bridgeton, MO no later than 17:00, December 05, 2017.
