Just a reminder your ballot for the SAMLARC election is due in the SAMLARC office by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 25th. In years past you could deliver your ballot at the Annual Meeting, but the SAMLARC Election Committee changed that rule this year.  Did you know that even if you send you ballot in on time it may not be counted for the election? The SAMLARC election process is delegate system; there are 86 delegate districts in the SAMLARC Association. In developments with sub-associations, the president of the sub-association is the delegate to SAMLARC. In developments without a sub-association a delegate is either elected by the residents or appointed by SAMLARC, some developments do not have delegates, so the votes cast by residents in those developments will not count. If you are in a non-sub association development you can contact SAMLARC to find out if you have a delegate.

The annual election process requires a quorum. The quorum is calculated by the total number of votes represented by each delegate district that is represented by a delegate. If not enough delegates attend to make quorum then the election would have to be held again and the members would be responsible for high cost of another election.

On the night of the Annual SAMLARC Meeting on February 27, 2014 at the Bell Tower, the delegates from all the various developments within the SAMLARC Association cast the ballots sent in by their respective residents for the election of the Board of Directors.  Did you know that if a delegate does not attend the meeting the votes of that development are not cast and do not count? That is why it is very important to find out who your delegate is and get a commitment that they will attend or assign someone to attend for them per the SAMLARC governing documents to assure your vote counts.

If you haven't received your ballot, please contact the SAMLARC office for a replacement ballot.

Thanks for the info and I am not a dentist. I met Mr. Chadd once and he seemed like a nice quiet professional man. Hard to understand why people are against him?

Mr. M, you said you don't like politicians. Make up your mind. Do you want to vote out a politician or have a discussion about how he seemed to be nice?
