Announcement Regarding Applicants for the November AGM

The Nominations and Elections Committee would like to announce that Gail Chiarello’s application was inadvertently overlooked in today’s count of candidates. The application was received in advance of the deadline and was stored in a safe location separate from the other applications that were received. Because of this, it was not processed during the regular meeting. Ms. Chiarello will appear on the ballot as the only candidate for the Nominations and Elections Committee.

Ballot Box Security Update

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   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.

Did You Get Your Ballot?

By now you should have received your August 13, 2022 Special General Meeting Recall Election Ballot.  If  not, call UniLect to request a replacement ballot.

If you did not receive your ballot, call UniLect’s Ballot Request Call Center, toll-free, at 1-866-466-6455, as soon as possible, to request a Duplicate Ballot.

You will need to let operators know you are with SVCA and provide further identifying information. Operators are standing by and available 24/7 throughout the balloting period.

Replacement ballots ARE NOT available through the Administration Office.
