Update from the election chairman May 31, 2016

Good evening,

After further review of the policies and due to confusion regarding the deadline for ballot return.  The June 3rd date stands.  All ballots received as of June 3, 2016 will be counted with the final ballot count on June 4, 2016.

This is being done in the interest of being fair to make sure all FRRS voting members have the maximum opportunity to vote.

The FRRS Board will have a business item at the board meeting to discuss future elections to ensure there is never this confusion again.

Thank You

David Epling

Update from the election chairman April 10, 2016

FRRS Members,

FRRS 2016 Board Election Voting materials were sent to the printer/mailing house today.  Your ballots should be in your mailboxes in the next 10 days.

You have until June 3rd at 5pm to return them to the official mailing address.  Any ballot NOT received by 5pm on the 3rd will not be counted.

As an FYI, Director Wayne Monger resigned from the FRRS Board yesterday (4/9/2016).  He remains a valid candidate for the 2016 Board Elections.  Votes for him will be counted as valid assuming the ballot itself is not defaced as noted in the rules.

Please vote and return your ballots in a timely manner.

Thank You

David Epling
2016 FRRS Board Election Chairman
