7b. Election Regulations
Explanatory Note:
The purpose of this motion is to create a set of regulations that are not year-specific. The deadlines will be the same, applicable to that particular year. Also, the Chief Teller will no longer be required to first seek the address of a law or accounting firm for mail-in ballots. Instead, the mail-in ballots will normally be sent to the host facility for the festival.
The sections that have any changes are "Deadlines" and "Ballot Mailing Address."
The "IJA Pre-Election and Election Regulations" can be found at http://www.juggle.org/business/electionregs2004.shtml#ballot-mailing-address)

Ballot Mailing Address
