On a related note, how would I go about verifying that FSP has my correct address on file?

Email members@freestateproject.org  :)



FOLKS, DO NOT WORRY ABOUT YOUR BALLOTS UNLESS YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED THEM BY SEPTEMBER 1.  They went out in a class of mail which the USPS says takes at longest, up to 3 weeks.  They were actually brought to the USPS on a Friday afternoon, Aug 1, so probably didn't get looked at until Aug 4.  So Aug 25th is a reasonable deadline, but the blackout and any other local snafu could push that out a few days.

Patience!  I haven't gotten mine either!!  8)

Thank you Elizabeth - perhaps we should have sent out ballots BEFORE announcing it... even 2 weeks before announcing...

it just got everyones hopes up and drooling everytime they go to the mailbox (which apparently is up to 5 times a day!)

Third class?You've got to be kidding.According to Debra in the Quill the members sent in $13,000 for the vote.I personally contributed $50.The vote count is being donated,so you cant claim that as an expense.WHERE DID THE MONEY GO?

I am sure that the Ballot cost will be presented in the next Quill Issue or something - I don't have a problem releasing the price but feel it is up to the FSP to do so - I can say that it is far less than $13,000 and that my bid was at least 15% less than the competition (as far as I know) - they did get multiple bids...

     If the FSP ever mass mails again, it would be nice to allow members to upgrade their mailing status with a simple donation of the appropriate funds.  1st class would have gotten them here in about 3 days.

I believe this was due to simple inexperience of those obtaining the printing/mailing quotes... I think they didn't understand it was going out Standard Mail.  But I could be wrong.  Definitely a lesson well-learned.  :-\

I believe the decision to go Standard (bulk) mail was made before to great paypal incident and the funds were limited... after the influx of donations AND the return of paypals theft, the FSP was awash in funds (kinda) but the mailing was already in process.  This is my guess and really do not know the intricate workings of the Board....

I believe I was clear as to the cheapest way to both print and mail these ballots, including what 'standard' mail was and approx. length of time...

I would have to check back at the email log to say for sure...

The door on my mailbox broke off a couple of weeks ago. I know I need to replace it, but have intentionally left it just the way it is...because I can look out my window and see if the mail has come yet! It has saved me multiple trips out to my mailbox each day just to see if the ballot has come yet!

Still waiting...but trying to be patient!   :-\
