Vote the ballot by completely filling in the oval to the right of the candidate's name.

Be sure to vote for only the number of candidates listed in the heading for that office.

Some offices allow more than one candidate to be nominated.

Complete both sides of the ballot if applicable.

Place the ballot in the secrecy sleeve with the stub number showing.
     - Place it in the return envelope
     - Seal it
     - Sign it and date it within the RED box on the front of the envelope

The ballot will not be counted if the envelope is not signed!
