Online voting for the ratification of the NPR Board’s election of Ralph Hogan to a second term as a Non-Board Member of NPR’s Distribution/Interconnection Committee has begun as of 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time, July 11, 2012. An email has been sent to each representative of a PRSS interconnected station with a unique username and password for voting in the ratification ballot, as well as voting instructions. Please look for this email from “email@example.com” in your email inbox and then take a moment to cast your vote. The voting instructions are included again below for your convenience.
The deadline for voting is Monday, August 13, 2012, at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
Please note that there is a separate ballot for the election of Member Directors and confirmation of the election of two Public Directors of the NPR Board. User names and passwords for the NPR Board election, which are different from the user names and passwords for the Non-Board D/I Committee member ratification, have been e-mailed separately.
