This year’s election will again be conducted electronically. No ballots will be mailed. All voters must have a valid email address on file with NAFA to receive a ballot. Voters include: club owners, regional directors, approved and supervising judges, and board members.
We are asking that all voters go through the confirmation process. This will confirm that we have a valid email address. The email you receive will also indicate how many votes you have earned for this election. This year the new delegate vote count goes into effect for clubs. Clubs earn votes for team entries on a per weekend basis and earn votes for hosting on a per day basis. The maximum number of votes per club is now 15. Please see the current rulebook at www.flyball.org for the specific vote allocations. Vote allocations for service votes (Regional Directors, Approved & Supervising Judges, and Board members) has not changed.
If you do not go through the verification process, we’ll have to send your ballot to the email address we have on file.
Please note that this is a TWO step process:
Step 1 – go to www.nafaflyball.com/database/eballot_signup.php, input your name and email address. Once you are found in the database, you’ll be sent a confirmation email.
Step 2 – after you receive the confirmation email, click on the link and make sure that your address has been verified.
If you have any trouble during the process, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need to update your email address (we have a few voters who have no email address on file), please send an email to email@example.com .
Please complete the confirmation process by November 19, 2012. We are hoping to have ballots sent out by December 3, 2012. Voting will end January 24, 2013 and results will be announced at the Annual General Meeting on January 26, 2013 in Minneapolis, MN.
