ARTICLE VII VOTING
B. At the discretion of the officers of the Council, when they feel it is in the best interest of the Council, the election of the officers will be by ballot at the annual meeting or by mail ballot. If the election is by mail ballot, the ballot will be mailed to each member forty-five (45) days prior to the annual meeting, and all the ballots MUST be returned thirty (30) days prior to the meeting. All ballots returned after that date will not be counted. Only members in good standing are permitted to vote.
With respect to the Constitution and Bylaws of the American Chiropractic Association Council on Physiological Therapeutics and Rehabilitation, the use of the terms mail, written document and letter can be used interchangeably and have the same legal authority as the terms verified e-mail and electronic transmission.
