Please Vote!

By now, you should have received your ballots for the Spring Senate elections.

Fulltime and Parttime Term Teaching Faculty & Librarians should have received 4 ballots in one set of envelopes, and 1 (corrected) ballot in another set of envelopes. Please return one each green, yellow, blue, and buff ballot sealed in one or more BALLOT envelopes within one or more SIGNED envelopes, to your department secretary by April 14. (Do whatever you want with the pink ballot -- it will not be counted!)

Administrative Faculty should have received 2 ballots in a set of envelopes. Please return one each green and yellow ballot sealed in the BALLOT envelope within the SIGNED envelope, to the ballot box in Erwin 219 by April 14.


Remember to Ballot in the Buff
The pink ballot is incorrect and will not be counted.

You knew I couldn't resist! Please remember, and share with your colleagues who might not read this Bulletin, that three corrections have been made to the Senator At Large ballot. These corrections are:

  • Elizabeth Hall's (Education) name has been added to the "6 and Under" nominees

  • (it was correctly included in the Bulletin sample ballot but inadvertently omitted from the pink ballot)
  • Barbara Mason's name has been moved from the "Over 6" nominees to the "6 and Under" nominees (it was incorrectly listed in both the sample ballot and pink ballot)
  • Linda Steet's last name is spelled correctly
A BUFF-colored, corrected Senator At Large ballot has been distributed. Be sure to return the buff ballot to have your votes for Senators at Large count.

I'm very sorry for the original errors and the confusion that has resulted.

Please Return Your Surveys to Nancy Danganan

To those who kindly took the doctoral student's surveys at the last two Senate meetings:

Ms. Danganan doesn't have your names to remind you to return your surveys. She is at your mercy! (Remember all the hold-ups involved in finishing your dissertation?!) Please return them in their stamped envelopes ASAP. Thank you for your cooperation, both in taking the survey and returning it.

Thank you to Joanie Ballard for her accurate minutes, fast turn-around time, and good humor, even in the face of back-to-back 2 hour meetings!
