Volunteers Needed for October Vote Count

The Teamsters Union election will be a controversial one (as were all the others!) and we want to do our usual efficient, accurate, and fair job. For those Leaguers who have participated in vote counts, you can anticipate meeting friends you may not have seen for a while and catch up on interests. For new members, you will experience an activity unique to the League in Hawaii.

The vote count begins with preparations for the mail out of approximately 6500 ballot packets from Monday, Sept. 26 to Tuesday, Oct. 4. This segment of the work will be handled in the League office daily from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with the exception of Sunday. We will need a minimum of 6 volunteers daily.

The final mail out will be held at 1617 Palama St., the Laborers' Union Local 368 meeting hall, on Wednesday, Oct. 5. Work will begin at 8:30 a.m. and must be completed on or before 2:00 p.m. so that the mail can be delivered to the bulk mail section of the post office before the 4:30 p.m. closing time. We must have a minimum of 25 volunteers to do this.

The work of this vote count resumes on Monday, Oct. 10 and continues to Friday, Oct. 28. We will be receiving mailed in ballots to our office daily. Again, we will need a minimum of 6 volunteers daily from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to check each envelope for eligibility and to service requests for second ballots.

The final tally of ballots will take place at the union meeting hall on Saturday, Oct. 29. We will begin at 8:30 a.m. and work until we complete the tallying, which we anticipate will be by 3:00 p.m. We will need 25 to 30 volunteers for this activity.

Continental breakfasts and lunches will be provided by the union on the Oct. 5 and Oct. 29. We urge all Leaguers to call the office and sign up for one or all of these vote counts.

Please call the office NOW and volunteer! Fees from vote counts pay for our office rent, telephone, office equipment, etc.
