2. After marking your ballots in the appropriate spots, they should be placed in the envelope marked “Place Completed Ballot(s) Inside This Envelope” and seal. Be sure to refold the ballots so they fit neatly in the envelope.
Please Note: If more than one of the same ballot is placed in the envelope, all ballots within that envelope will be considered spoiled. Only original ballots with a verified stamp will be counted.
3. The sealed Ballot Envelope which says “Place Completed Ballot(s) Inside This Envelope” should then be placed in the pre-addressed, postage paid envelope for “Grant Thornton” and mailed through Canada Post.
Please Note: If more than one ballot envelope is placed in the return envelope those ballots will be considered spoiled. The return envelope has your name and address in the upper left corner as the return address. This information is used to confirm that you are eligible to vote. If your name is removed, your ballot cannot be checked against the voter’s list and will be considered spoiled. DO NOT send ballots by Internal Mail or they will be considered spoiled.
To ensure your vote is kept confidential, each Ballot Envelope will be removed from the return envelope. All eligible ballot envelopes will then be placed together prior to their opening. Scrutineers are present during the preparation, mailing and counting of the ballots to ensure transparency.
All ballots must be received by 11:00 a.m. December 8, 2022. No mail in ballots will be accepted past that time. No walk-in ballots will be accepted at Grant Thornton.
Please allow sufficient time for your ballot to reach the indicated Accounting Firm’s Address by Regular Postal Service.
Any Member that does not receive a ballot, and is eligible to vote, may do so at the Union Office on December 8, 2022 between the hours of 5:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Additionally, if you prefer to vote in person, you may do so.
The in-person voters list will be crosschecked with the mail in voters list prior to the ballots being counted. If a Member is found to have voted twice, both ballots will be considered spoiled.
Voters are only allowed to deposit their own ballots on Election Day.
