Bylaw petition to allow electronic voting

Electronic voting would allow division materials to be distributed and processed more quickly

The board approved a bylaw change in January 2011 to allow electronic voting, and this is being submitted to members for their vote. The board approved the change to expedite responses to issues and to save money. The current bylaws provide only for posting notice in one of the three yearly issues of the newsletter, and mailing ballots which then have to be mailed back and counted. Electronic voting would allow materials to be distributed and returned more quickly, and tallying votes would be almost immediate. In addition, the costs for reproduction, postage, and handling would be eliminated.
