There was a protest filed regarding the Facility Chief Steward election for Patton State Hospital.
Two members reported that they were sent incorrect ballots and did not receive the correct ballots in a timely manner and therefore were not provided with an opportunity to vote.
Based on these reports, the Election Committee has upheld the protest and a new election must be conducted for the affected Members.
The ballots will be sent via postal mail based on the timelines listed in the last runoff ballot.
Patton State Hospital members, please stay tuned for more information regarding this.
