TO BE COUNTED, YOUR MAIL-IN BALLOT MUST REACH THE NLRB OFFICE BY AUGUST 24, 2020.
Details of the election can be found below. Please take a few minutes to review carefully and feel free to reach out with any questions.
Here is what you need to know:
To uphold the safety of all workers, due to COVID-19, the election will be conducted by mail-in ballot through United States mail.
Ballots will be mailed on July 29, meaning you should receive your mail-in election ballot no later than August 5, 2020. It is important to return your ballot as soon as possible, to make sure your vote will be counted on August 26, 2020.
If you do NOT receive a ballot in the mail by August 5, but you believe you are eligible to vote, please communicate immediately with the NLRB by calling either the Region 03 Office at (518) 431-4155 or the national toll-free line at 1-844-762-NLRB (1-844-762-6572).
Completed ballots must be received by the NLRB no later than August 24, 2020.
- We recommend dropping your ballot in the mail as soon as possible in order to ensure that it is delivered in time to be counted.
- Ballots will be counted on a virtual platform on August 26, 2020, at 1:00 p.m.
- Make sure that there are NO extra markings on your ballot, or it won’t be counted! The only marking should be to indicate your Yes or No vote.
- Voters must sign the outside f the envelope in which the ballot is returned. Any ballot received in an envelope that is not signed will NOT be counted.
All votes will remain completely confidential, both to the union and to Encore Management. We encourage everyone to vote and make your voice heard!
