Note!!! The 12:00 noon November 16th voting deadline is not a “postmark” deadline; it is the last instant that Member ballots can be received at the League address on the ballot return envelope and still be counted. Plan on allowing at least a full calendar week for returning your ballot by mail, and give overnight delivery carriers at least two days to be sure their “overnight” mail makes it in time.
