Village Elections 2018: Another Uncontested Election

The River Hill Community Association will hold elections for members of the Board of Directors on Saturday, April 28 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Voting will be held at Claret Hall. Any River Hill resident age 18 or older is 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. We need residents to vote to reach the quorum and ensure a valid election.
Are you unable to vote in person? Beginning on April 8, absentee ballots will be available for residents unable to cast a ballot at the polls. Absentee ballots may be requested in writing through April 18 or picked up in person at Claret Hall through April 27. New this year, due to the by-law change approved by members in 2017, all residents of a property age 18 or older are now permitted to vote by absentee ballot. Proof of person, age and residency is required to obtain an absentee ballot. All absentee ballots must be returned to Claret Hall by midnight on April 27.
Two Candidates Running
This year there are two candidates running for positions on the Association’s Board of Directors: Adam White and Harjeet Jandu. Candidate statements are provided on page 5. Since there are four open positions on the Board and only two candidates the race is uncontested and there will be no Candidates’ Forum.
At their meeting on April 9, the Board of Directors will consider whether to reduce the size of the Board to five mem- bers, which is the minimum number required, or keep the Board at seven members. If a decision is made to maintain a seven-member Board, then the Association will announce a request for letters of interest from residents interested in being appointed to fill the two positions.
Shredding and E-Cycling
Plan to do a little spring cleaning while coming to vote on Election Day! The Association is offering Shredding and E-cycling from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 28. This event will be held in the parking lot in front of Claret Hall and is free for River Hill residents. I.D. is required. Non-residents may take advantage of this service for a $5 fee. For details see page 8 of the April issue of The Villager.
Volunteers Still Needed
The Election Committee still has space for volunteers to assist on Election Day from 8:45 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. One hour shifts available! Please contact Susan Smith, Village Manager, at 410-531-1749 or manager@villageofriverhill.org if you are able to help.
