    @UpstateNYUPSer

    They are checking eligibility right now.

    Some members have eliminated their own vote because they cut out or whited out their name on the outside mailing ballot.

    I guess they didn't understand the reason for the blue secret ballot.

    It will be a long process so stay strong. I'll update you again later.

    That's how they check the eligibility of the member.


    Once their eligibility has been verified.... then, and only then.... is their secret ballot

    put in to the collective pile to be counted.


    There are always instructions explaining this.

    Yes I know. I was present for a couple vote counts.

    Around 9k but only 6,200 I believe were eligible to vote.

    I've seen other California Locals that list eligible voting members....

    and then the rest are "pending". Could it be temporary migrant workers ?


    Just a guess.

    To my knowledge convention center trade show workers. Though I don't have all the information about it. It's just what I was told by both sides that only around 6,200 were eligible.

    So the accusations have already started. The M4M slate is saying that some members that had dues taken out in October didn't have dues taken in November so they will be protesting the results.

    I'm sure the @Hofficer Hater will be here shortly to spread the rumors around.
