    This year CASE members will elect seven directors at large, each with a two-year term of office. An independent elections company will mail ballots and candidate statements to all CASE members on October 3, 2014. Please note that fair share members of Bargaining Unit 2 may not vote in CASE elections. However, fair share members who become CASE members on or before September 23, 2014, will qualify to participate in the election.
     

    Ballots must be received at the address specified by the independent elections company no later than 5:00 p.m. on November 6, 2014. The ballots will be tallied and the results announced on November 7, 2014, via e-mail and the CASE website (www.calattorneys.org).
     

    If you have moved or changed your mailing address in the last 12 months, please contact the CASE office at (800) 699-6533 to update your contact information, which will help ensure that you receive your ballot in a timely manner.
     

    The order of candidates on the official ballot will be determined by random drawing, which will take place on Saturday, September 20, 2014, at the CASE Board of Directors meeting in Sacramento. Members and candidates are, as always, welcome to attend the Board meeting. (Please contact CASE at (800) 699-6533 to register to attend, as the CASE office is located in a building that is normally closed and locked on weekends.)
     

    CASE thanks all of the candidates who have volunteered to represent and serve the members of Bargaining Unit 2, and wishes each candidate good luck in the 2014 election.
     

    Sincerely,
    The CASE Board of Directors
