If you’re not attending April’s Monthly Gathering on Saturday, April 27th, please cast your vote electronically using this fool-proof online ballot at or before 8 PM on Saturday, April 27th. If you prefer a paper ballot, mail it so it is received by Friday, April 26th or give it to a trusted messenger who can drop it into the ballot box at the Monthly Gathering.

To cast an electronic ballot, click on this link. Fill out your American Mensa membership number (required) which is listed as part of your profile on the American Mensa website. Cast your vote for officers. Candidates will appear in random order. Use “Other” if you want to vote for a write-in for Local Secretary, Business Manager, and/or Treasurer. If you wish to vote for a write-in candidate for Gen Rep please vote for write-in (1 or 2) and fill in the name below. The form will not allow you to vote for more than the allowed number of Candidates. You do not need to vote for every office to submit your ballot.

Paper ballots are on our website and are available in the April ChiMe. Please print out the ballot or, if you get a paper version of ChiMe, use the one in the April issue. Follow the instructions to the right of the ballot exactly to avoid having your ballot disqualified.

  • Your mail-in ballot must be received by Friday, April 26th, so mail it today!
  • The envelope can also be dropped off at the Monthly Gathering by a trusted messenger during the in-person voting hours.

In the case multiple ballots are received from a member, only the most recently received ballot will count. For mailed ballots, the postmark will be used as the date of submittal.

The results will be announced sometime after in-person voting closes at the April Monthly Gathering. The results will be available on the website a few days later and in the June issue of ChiMe. Our Officers webpage will reflect the new ExComm members as of May 1st, the first day of their term.

If you have questions, please contact Deb Johnston, our Election Procedures Committee Chair.

Details

If you’re not attending April’s Monthly Gathering on Saturday, April 27th, cast your vote electronically using our online form by Thursday, June 29th or mail your paper vote so it is received by Thursday, June 29th. You may also deliver your paper bylaws ballot to a member of the election procedures committee at the May or June Monthly Gatherings, in-person or by messenger. The link to both the online ballot and the instructions will be available to members on our website no later than Monday, April 1st. We intend to also send the link and instructions via email to members who have allowed their email to be shared with the local group (if you get the weekly event email, you have shared your email).

Since it’s probably too late to mail in a paper ballot and get there before the deadline, you may give it to a trusted person who will attend the MG and can drop it into the ballot box. If you prefer mail, please print out the ballot or, if you get a paper version of ChiMe, use the one in the April issue. Follow the instructions to the left of the ballot exactly to avoid having your ballot disqualified.

In the case multiple ballots are received from a member, only the most recently received ballot will count. For mailed ballots, the postmark will be used as the date of submittal. Note: In-person ballots count as being received last, even if another ballot is received later by different means.

The Election Procedures Committee will certify the results of the referendum to the membership in the August 2023 issue of ChiMe. The results will be available on the website once the Election Procedures Committee shares its results.

If you have questions, about voting, please contact Deb Johnston, our Election Procedures Committee Chair.
