If you did not receive your ARRL ballot
Current reports from across the West Gulf are that almost all ballots
have been received.
However, there are reports from some areas that as of this email, some
Members have not received their ballots.
Deadline For Delivery Of Ballots To West Gulf Division Members
The ARRL's deadline for delivery of all ballots by third-class mail
to West Gulf Division Members is today, Monday, October 14, 2019.
If you have not received your ballot by the end of mail delivery for
your address today, then you need to notify HQ - via email - that
you have not received your ballot.
Failed Ballot Delivery Replacement Process
If do not receive your ballot, to obtain a replacement ballot you must
do the following:
(1) Send an email both of the following addresses:
(2) State in the email that you have not received your ballot;
(3) Request that a replacement ballot be sent to you by first class
(4) Provide your complete, current, mailing address to which the ballot
should be sent;
(5) Provide your name and call sign.
Note, if you happen to receive the original ballot and return it in
addition to the replacement ballot to ensure your vote will be counted,
both ballots will be disqualified.
Some Members whose primary residence (sounds like fun) is an RV and who
have a mail service collect and forward their mail may be faced with the
destruction/non-delivery of third-class mail.
If you are one of these Members, please follow the above process for an
undelivered ballot, but add a statement that you cannot/do not receive
third class mail.
ARRL Postcard Regarding An Error In The Deadline Notice
HQ send a postcard attempting to clarify a poorly worded/inaccurate
notice regarding the deadline for receipt of a ballot to be counted.
The postcard appears to have created more confusion that originally
The deadline for RECEIPT of your ballot by the accounting firm
CohnReznick LLP remains Noon, Friday, November 15, 2019. Just be certain
you mail your ballot in sufficient time for it to arrive.
If after following the above procedure, you still do not receive a
ballot, please email me at N5AUS@n5aus.com.
