FAQs about the 2020 SOA Board election
Do I have to be a full-time Somersett resident to vote in the SOA Board election?
No. Individuals owning property in Somersett are entitled to one vote per parcel owned, either a residence or an unimproved lot. In order to vote, you must be a ‘member in good standing,’ meaning you are current on all fees.
When should I expect my ballot to arrive?
Ballots will be mailed on Oct. 23. Nevada law requires that all directors be elected by secret written ballot. Only you can vote on your secret ballot, which must be completely filled in and placed in the yellow envelope marked “secret ballot,” sealed, then placed inside the white envelope, which should also be sealed. Do not put anything else but the ballot in the white envelope! Please put your name and Somersett address of record on the outside of the white envelope for validation purposes. Your ballot will not be opened until the Annual Members Meeting on Monday, Nov. 16.
How do I return my ballot?
U.S. Mail: The easiest way to return your ballot is to use the return mail envelope included in the voting packet. Mailed ballots must be received by 1 pm on Nov. 16.
In-person: Ballots can also be returned in person to the Ballot Box at The Club at Town Center, located across from the front desk. The deadline to submit a ballot in person is at 1 pm on Nov. 16. Please note: Due to coronavirus concerns, we will not collect ballots at Aspen Lodge this year.
I lost my ballot or did not receive one. What do I do?
Contact the SOA Office at 775-787-4500, Monday – Friday, 8 am-5 pm, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Once property ownership has been confirmed, a new ballot will be issued.
I own more than one property and received more than one ballot. Can I return all the ballots in the same envelope to save postage costs?
Yes, so long as each ballot has a property address on it for verification purposes.
How can I find out more information about the candidates?
How do I stay informed on the election?
The best way to stay informed of all important dates related to the SOA and the election is to subscribe to the weekly Somersett Happenings e-newsletter which is sent every Tuesday or Wednesday. If you are not currently subscribed, contact Robin Bolson at email@example.com.
