Vote Count Volunteers Needed (Arlene Ellis)

Vote Count Volunteers Needed

We have contracted to repeat the Teamsters Union election of officers from May 26 to July 1. Six volunteers will be needed daily from May 26 to June 2 to stuff envelopes. The work will be held at our office from 9:00 am to noon on weekdays.

On Saturday, June 3, we need 20 volunteers to meet at Kapalama School from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm to complete the preparation of 6,000 pieces of mail. Lunch will be provided by the union.

At least six volunteers per day will be needed to work in the office from June 7 to June 28. Mail will be alphabetized and checked for eligibility every weekday from 9:00 am to noon. This is also the period in which we respond to calls for second ballots from those union members who have misplaced or purportedly not received their ballots. Saturday, July 1, is "T" day, when the final tally is made. We will require at least 24 volunteers to complete this part of the election. Kapalama School is again the site of the tabulation, beginning at 9:00 a.m. and continuing until we have completed the work, which we anticipate will be in the vicinity of 2:30 p.m. The more volunteers we have, the quicker we will be done.

Since this repeat of the 1994 election was sanctioned by the courts, representatives of IBT, the Teamsters national arm, will be overseeing the process. Tension will be higher than normal, but League has worked under more strenuous conditions in previous years.

Elections Coordinator
