You may have noticed the SVCA Ballot Box outside the Administration Office was closed Monday for lock replacement. We closed the ballot box because a search for keys turned up more ballot box keys than should exist. We found an original key plus other keys that were clearly not originals. All of the keys opened the ballot box. There may be additional keys we did not find and anyone with a key could have removed ballots. That is not a good thing for ballot security or a fair election.
If you cast your SGM recall election ballot in the SVCA Ballot Box before 8 am Monday July 25 and want to be re-assured your ballot was not pilfered, please contact N&E Chair Nancy Alyanak at firstname.lastname@example.org. N&E committee members collected and registered those vulnerable ballots. We can check your name or your div/lot number against our list of registered ballots.
