NEW DEADLINE: An Update on Mailed 2022 Election Ballots
NEW DEADLINE: SUNDAY, JAN. 31
We apologize for the flurry of emails this week. Things are changing quickly, and we want to keep everyone as updated as possible.
We still look forward to seeing you at our Annual Parish Meeting on Sunday, Jan. 30, at 11:30 a.m., but if you cannot be with us on that day and plan to vote by mail, please review the important update below.
All eligible electors will receive their absentee ballot in the mail so that they may vote in the parish election if they are unable to attend the Annual Meeting. Due to pandemic staffing shortages plaguing businesses nationally and locally, our 2022 election ballots are behind schedule at the printer. Parish bylaws state that mailed ballots must be received seven days before the Annual Meeting. Given the unusual circumstances, the Vestry has approved an exception to the by-laws that allows ballots to count if received by Monday, January 31.
Please keep an eye out for your ballots and, if you plan to vote absentee, return your ballot as soon as possible. Here are two quick ways to do so:
- Fill out your ballot, seal it in the pre-paid envelope enclosed in the ballot mailing and send it back to us in the mail.
- Fill out your ballot, seal it in the enclosed envelope, and bring it with you to place in the offering plate during worship either on Sunday, Jan. 23, or on Sunday, Jan. 30.
Votes cast by mail will be logged and checked against ballots cast during the Annual Meeting to ensure only one vote is cast per eligible elector.
