Your vote matters!
Please vote on May 12!
Your information packet was mailed to your home. This is your information packet for the 2016 VMA Council election. It includes your official notice about the election on May 12 and the community forum on April 28, the list of candidates, copies of the statements they provided, the instructions for absentee ballots, and the form to fill out if you want to apply for an absentee ballot.
We’ve extended the voting hours this year – 5 to 8 p.m. – to provide more time for folks who need to vote early, as well as those who work downtown and don’t get home until late.
In the community survey conducted by the Election Committee, residents said they really enjoyed voting in person at the lively Village Celebration on the sidewalk in front of the shops. So we hope to see you there! There will be art work, music, and fun – special attractions at the shops – and yes, free ice cream again (thank you, Brookville Market!).
To make voting easier, the Council also approved new election procedures this year so you can now request and receive an absentee ballot by email. You’ll just need to print the absentee ballot out and send in your completed ballot in hard copy (see the absentee ballot instructions). The absentee ballot request form is in this packet.
To ensure your privacy, the absentee ballots are now assigned randomized control numbers. Please be sure to put the number on the outer envelope, instead of your name and address. To ensure security, you can now mail your absentee ballot to the new VMA Election Committee P.O. Box.
Here is the list of candidates running for the VMA Council this year:
Please email the Election Committee at VMAelections@gmail.com if you have any questions about voting, or call Steve Trowern at 202-744-0223. We’ll be glad to help.
Your vote matters! Please come out and vote on May 12!
Your VMA Election Committee:
Lee Ann Anderson (Chair), Marty Langelan, Naomi Naierman, Steve Trowern, and Natalie Straus Welle
