If there is more than one nominee for a Place, an election will take place. That election will be implemented through a third-party election service, Election-America, and will take place from July 20 through Aug. 15, 2018. Election ballots will be sent to every eligible voter within that Place. The election will be fully automated and eligible members will be able to vote by mail, e-mail or telephone. Full voting instructions, including biographies of each candidate, will be included on the ballot. Eligible voters who have e-mail addresses on file will also receive e-mail notices of the election, which will include links to candidate bios and the e-mail voting site.
