Voting Guidelines


The membership of the WCCEA will be holding a Vote of No Confidence in President Bellanca’s leadership at this Thursday, May 1st, at the General Membership Meeting.   The language of the No Confidence Vote is relatively simple. It reads as follows.
Shall the membership pass a Vote of No Confidence in President Bellanca’s leadership?
Voting will be done via secret paper ballot at the meeting, and your WCCEA Board urges you to attend this meeting and vote. However, recognizing that some individuals have commitments during this time period, and in order to allow the largest number of individuals a chance to have their say, absentee voting will be permitted. Absentee voting will follow the guidelines established by the WCCEA Board for elections. Essentially, anyone wishing to vote absentee will need to stop by my office, fill out a signature card, show ID, and get an absentee ballot. Exact details of the absentee voting procedure can be found in the attachment (see below).   In order to facilitate absentee balloting, I am listing the times I should be available this week.  They are:
Tuesday 10:30 – 2:00
Wednesday 2:00 – 4:00
Thursday 10:30 – 2:00
If none of those options work for you, you can try to catch me at other times.  However, please remember that this is finals week. There are a couple of other traditional activities I need to attend to during this time period. If you have any questions, please let me know.
