Follow the Instructions Carefully
A secret ballot election for the offices of president, vice president, treasurer, and secretary, as well as 20 senators, 20 alternate senators, 9 FEA delegates and 9 FEA alternate delegates is being conducted by mail. Ballots for this election are being mailed to members on July 1, 2020. Any eligible member who has not received a ballot in the mail at home by July 7, 2020 or any member who spoil a ballot may request a new ballot by contacting Election Committee Chairperson Nina Orlovskaya at or by text at 407-913-4438. Only the replacement ballot will be counted at the tally.
Instructions For Mail Voting
Please read the following instruction carefully before marking and mailing your ballot:
Mark an “X” or place a “√” in the box next to the name of the candidate of your choice. If you would like to vote for the full slate with one mark, mark an “X” or place a “√” in the large box labeled “Full Slate”. Do not place your name, initials, or any other identifying information on the ballot. Ballots containing any identifying information will be voided.
Place your marked ballot in the small envelope labeled: “Secret Ballot Envelope” and seal it. Do not write on this envelope. You are asked to use the secret ballot envelope to insure that ballot secrecy is maintained.
Insert the sealed secret ballot envelope containing your marked ballot into the return envelope pre-addressed to the UFF UCF Election Committee and seal it. Print your name and address in the returned address space on the return ballot envelope.
Your name on the returned envelope will identify you as an eligible voter. The number in the lower left corner of the return ballot envelope will be used by the Election Committee for sorting ballots and determining voter eligibility at the ballot count.
