Annual Election Announcement


As called for in the By-Laws, it is time to elect to two year terms the Vice-President of Facilities and Equipment, the Treasurer, and the Secretary.  The Nominating Committee suggested a candidate for each of the offices, and there were no other members who said they wanted to run for any of the offices.  Because we are not having an in-person membership meeting this month, the election will be remote, like the election last year.  Unlike last year's election, this year the election will be on-line using a built-in capability on the OVWG web site.  Concern about possible post office delivery delays and any question about election integrity are eliminated this way.


Ballots may be completed and submitted through 16 April.


The ballot may be completed using a home or office computer, the Learning Center Computer, a public computer at a branch of the public library, or a smart phone.  Only members may vote, and members cannot submit more than one ballot.


The ballot has been tested and seems to work as it should, but this is the first time an on-line election has been conducted by OVWG - if problems arise, the membership will be kept informed and if necessary the election extended beyond April 16 for a few days.


To access the ballot:

            Log on to the OVWG web site

            Under the “Members” tab on the home page, select “Surveys”

            On the “Surveys” page select ”2022 Officers Election”

Complete the ballot and “Save.”


Thanks for participating.
