voteBoard of Directors Seats to be Filled by Appointment
Come out to vote in Village Elections on Saturday, April 25.
We have one candidate, Chao Wu, running for the River Hill
Columbia Council position. Check page 13 for his candidate
statement. No valid nomination petitions were submitted for
the three open positions on the Association’s Board of Directors.
These positions will be filled by appointment. Although uncontested,
per the Association’s legal documents we must hold an election
and meet our quorum of votes. Therefore, every vote matters!
Voting will be held at Claret Hall on April 25 from 9 a.m. – 3
p.m. Any River Hill resident age 18 or older is a member of the Association
and entitled to vote. Residents must bring proof of person,
residency, and age to the poll. A Maryland driver’s license,
Howard County voter registration card, passport, and/or birth
certificate may be used. Newly settled residents may present a
deed, lease, or a utility bill addressed to the individual at their
River Hill address.
Absentee ballots will be available beginning on April 4 from
9 a.m. – noon at Claret Hall and during regular business hours
thereafter. An absentee ballot may only be cast if no other member
of the residence will cast a ballot at the polling place. Absentee
ballots may be requested in writing through April 15 or in
person at Claret Hall through April 24. Proof of person and age is
required. All absentee ballots must be returned to Claret Hall by
midnight on April 24.
In conjunction with voting on April 25, the Association is
sponsoring a Gold Party Event at Claret Hall from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Residents are invited to bring gold and silver items in for a no obligation,
free evaluation by a Gold Party consultant. Should you decide
to sell, Gold Party Event will make donations to Food on the
15th and the Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center. Appointments
are not necessary, but preferred. For more information on this opportunity,
visit page 10 of the newsletter.
