It's that time a year where we have our Trinity Church Annual Elections Meeting. Of course, it will look a little different this year as we make some adjustments for the Covid environment we are currently in. You will have a couple of choices in attending the meeting. First, you may attend live. Just sign up for the regular Sunday morning 10:00 am service and stick around for the Business Meeting to follow. Second, you may attend online. Just like the service on Sunday morning we will stream the Business Meeting. For those joining us online, you will be able to ask questions using the discussion format on Facebook Live.
In terms of procedure, we hope to have enough people live that will fulfill a quorum, if not we will take a count of those members online as well through the chat features. For the normal ballot voting, Trinity Church members will have three options.
Option - If you are present at the meeting, you can drop your ballot in the ballot box at the end of the meeting
Option - You can fill out your ballot at home and drop it by the office on either Wednesday, January 13, from 9:00 to 1:00 pm or Friday, January 15, from 9:00 to 1:00 pm.
Option - You can fill out your ballot at home and mail it to the church. Please note that the ballot needs to arrive by Friday, January 15, when we pick up the mail at the post office. So please make sure to mail your ballot on Monday, January 11.
Our church constitution does not allow for proxy voting, so each ballot will need to be signed. You will notice that the ballot will have two halves. The top half will be the ballot that you will use to vote, and the bottom half will be a section to print your name and sign. When we receive your ballot someone will authenticate the name is on our membership roles, and then all sheets will be cut in half so those who tally the ballots will only see the ballot portion.
The ballots themselves will be emailed to members by January 3rd and will also be available to download online here.
