  • Election Procedures - Board of Directors - Feb. 9 to Mar. 7, 2017

    Election will be by sealed, secret ballot.

    Ballots will be available at each of the three Mountain Oaks sites. The procedure for voting will be as follows:

    1.  You must present picture identification at the front desk of the site to which you have been assigned. If you live in Calaveras County, you will vote at the San Andreas site. Tuolumne residents will vote at the Sonora site. Amador residents will vote at the Ione site. Those residing in other, contiguous counties (i.e.: Stanislaus or San Joaquin Counties) will vote at the San Andreas site. The site you vote at is based on the physical address that you have on file with the school. For example, if you are a resident of Jackson, but you regularly attend the San Andreas site instead of the Ione site, your voting place will be the Ione site, since your physical location of your residence is in Amador County. Mountain Oaks staff members will vote at their primary work site.

    2.  Once we have checked your identification and verified that you are at the right site for voting, you will be asked to sign the voter register. You will be given a ballot and an envelope and directed to the polling booth located near the front office. You must go immediately from the front desk to the polling station and complete your ballot, which must then be sealed into the envelope, returned to the front desk and deposited in the ballot box. You may not leave the polling area with your ballot. Ballots not sealed in an envelope will not be counted. Ballots will not be mailed and they may not be taken home, so please make sure you are ready to vote when you request your ballot.

    Voting will take place only during regular office hours at the three Mountain Oaks sites and will open on Thursday, 2/9/17 at the start of that site’s regular hours:

    • Calaveras site is located at 150 Old Oak Road, San Andreas -- office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30A to 4:00P

    • Tuolumne site is located at 518 S. Washington Street, Sonora -- office hours are M/W/F 8:00A to 3:00P and T/Th 8:00A to 12:30P.

    • Amador site is located at 217 W. Jackson Street, Ione -- office hours are Monday through Thursday, 8:30A to 4:00P

    3.  Ballots will be collected from the Amador and Tuolumne sites on March 7th, at close of the day. The ballots will be counted by members of the Board Development Committee on March 8, 2017 at 9:00A in the administrator’s office at the San Andreas site. Candidates for the Board of Directors are welcome to observe the ballot counting process.

    4.  In order for the election to be considered valid, a minimum of 138 members (or one-third of the overall membership) must participate in the election.  As our MO By-Laws do not stipulate what constitutes a quorum, we must defer to the California Corporate Code which stipulates a quorum equals 33% of the total membership. In the event that we do not achieve the minimum quorum, the election will end and the current Board will stay in place until such time as we can revise the MO By-Laws and/or hold an election that will achieve the 33% quorum.
