Good day Brothers and Sisters
Over the last few weeks Local 110 office has been informed that some journeyman members who are eligible to vote have not received the official Local 110 ballot that was mailed from the independent third party. This information has been provided to the Local 110 Election Committee Chair Johannus (Joe) Visser for the Committee to implement a resolution.
As such I have been contacted by the Election Committee Chair and have been informed that due to the limited time before the date of the count, a polling station will be set up at the Local 110 office in Edmonton (9335-47 street Edmonton) starting at 09:00 until 16:30 Thursday December 14, 2017 and from 09:00 until 16:00 Friday December 15, 2017 to allow eligible members the opportunity to vote in person.
Any member that chooses to vote at the polling station will be provided a ballot, one white envelope and one brown envelope. The ballot will be marked and placed inside the white envelope. The envelope will then be placed inside the brown envelope. The members name will be placed on the outside of the brown envelope and placed inside the locked ballot box. On December 16, 2017 the ballot box will be presented at the time of the count the names of the members who voted in person will be cross referenced with the ballots that were returned by mail. If it is found that the member provided two ballots both will be removed from the count. All ballots left will be removed from the brown envelopes and piled to be mixed and the count will move forward as usual.
If you have any questions regarding this process please contact the Local 110 office at (780) 426-2874 and your name and phone number will be provided to the Election Committee Chair, so the Committee can answer your question. As the Business Manager and an interested party to this election I have no input regarding this election or the process that is followed as such please understand that all questions have to be answered by the Election Committee.
