Hello Cascade Shooting Facilities Members.
CSF is voting on a few changes to the club’s By-Laws and Operating Procedures. Ballots will be in the mail very soon. Please follow the instructions carefully so your ballot can be counted. Below is a link to a sample ballot so you can familiarize yourself with the proposed changes:
Here is the By-Law pertaining to the voting procedure:
AMENDMENTS TO THE BYLAWS
Section 2. Voting Procedures
A. All proposed amendments, supporting documents and voting ballots shall be mailed to all members in good standing in a timely manner after the meeting in which the amendment was proposed. All voting ballots shall be marked with the amendment pertaining to them and shall be used for the amendment only. The ballot shall not have any identification indicating who the ballot was issued to. To be a valid ballot, the ballot may be mailed to: Cascade Shooting Facilities, PO Box 310, Ravensdale. WA. 98051, and received by the beginning of the General meeting on which the vote on the amendment is to take place. These mailed in ballots will be validated by their return address on the outer envelope or a separate sheet of paper indicating the valid voter’s name. The ballot must be in an unmarked, unopened security envelope within the outer (validating) envelope, then deposited to the ballot box once validated. Only one vote per membership. Spouses and children are not allowed to vote.

The Secretary shall keep a running list of those members who have voted by mail, and the secretary or the membership chair shall verify eligible voters the night of the general meeting. The eligible voters shall be given a ballot, or they may use their ballot received in the mailing. The secretary will record their names, and all eligible voters will be allowed to vote on the measure before the general meeting. These ballots will be kept in a locked box until time to count them. All ballots will be kept secret, locked until counting time, and then preserved by CSF for ninety (90) days following the results, at which time the ballots will be destroyed. A vote counting committee of five (5) CSF members shall be chosen at random by the President at the general meeting at which the vote is to be taken. These five (5) members may not be Board of Directors or committee members.
