Member Voting

The 2020 election is November 9-30, 2020

All ASTAC members will be voting on a Bylaw amendment. Members in Anaktuvuk Pass, Kaktovik and Wainwright will also be voting for their director.

Online voting will be done through SmartHub (web only). All ASTAC members will also receive paper ballots but are encouraged to vote online.

Each vote cast for a community’s director will earn members in Anaktuvuk Pass, Kaktovik and Wainwright one entry into a raffle for a $100 ASTAC bill credit. Each online vote will earn one additional entry.

Mail in Ballot (Vote by Mail)

Paper ballots will be mailed to members ASTAC does not have email addresses for on November 9, 2020. Use the perforation to tear off your official ballot. Cast your vote for your district. You must sign and date the bottom of your ballot or it cannot be counted. Place your signed official ballot in the postage-paid envelope.

Mail in ballots must be received by Friday, November 30. 2020 to be counted.

Ballot/Vote Verification
To ensure one vote per membership our third-party vendor, Survey & Ballot Systems, will be overseeing the board vote count. If a member accidentally votes in more than one form the first vote received will be counted as your first and final vote. At each stage of the voting process there will be a verification process to ensure that a member has not already cast a vote.
