Please make sure you return your ballot in a timely manner.
 
Each ballot needs to be individually, just 1 (one,)  sealed inside the single envelope provided and mailed back.
 
Chapters may gather the members completed and sealed ballot envelope, 1(one) per envelope and sealed,  and mail in one larger envelope from the chapter to the appropriate address that will be provided to save on postage for the members.
 
The tally of ballots will be Tuesday morning of the International convention in Milwaukee anyone attending the convention may submit to volunteer to be on the counting committee, that includes spouses of members in attendance, but they must be registered at the convention.

As you can see we ill have a european candidate for the position of the international vice-president. It would be a important sign for us if we have a european Blue Knight in the international board on this very important position. So take your right to vote and support our candidate.  
If there are any question about the election aks your chapter-president or a member of the european board.
Voting is important!
