We recently became aware of a problem with the current runoff election when some of our life members complained that they had not received ballots. Working through the accountants we discovered that 63 eligible USPSA members failed to receive ballots.
That discovery came on the 17th day of November. The bylaws state that ballots must be received by the accountants no later than December 1st to be eligible to be counted.
To deal with this dilemma, and to correct their error, the mailing house agreed to send those previously unsent ballots via overnight delivery at their expense to the affected members. We have been informed that those ballots went out on November 18, 2011.
Please note that these are NOT replacement ballots which are prohibited by the USPSA bylaws. These are ballots that should have been sent earlier but were not.
The board of directors is schedule to address this issue during their December 3-4, 2011 meeting in Dallas. Watch for the online minutes for results.
