Ballots are in the mail! Here’s how to vote

 

The NewsGuild election committee mailed ballots to more than 16,000 members this week. Most will receive ballots at their home addresses. Some locals are conducting in-person voting.

My colleagues and I put together a short video explaining the voting process, timeline and voters’ rights:

Ballots need to be returned to NewsGuild headquarters by early May. Votes will be counted on May 13.

If you spoil your ballot or do not receive one, request a new ballot by contacting Marian Needham at mneedham@cwa-union.org or 716-713-1195.

Most members in newly organized shops, like the Los Angeles Times, are not eligible to vote. To be eligible to vote, a member must be dues-paying and in good standing in the months of September, October or November 2018. Dues must have been paid by December 15, 2018.

See the full instructions for more information and view a sample ballot here.
