Deadlines Approaching to Request Duplicate Ballot
and to Become Voter Eligible
Flight Attendants based in CLT, DCA, DFW, LAX, LGA, MIA and PHX should have already received their ballots for the 2021 Base Representative Election. The last day to request a duplicate ballot is tomorrow, February 26, 2021 at 12:00pm (CT). If you still need a ballot, please fill out the Duplicate Ballot Request Form immediately.
Ballots must be received to the designated post office box no later than 10:00am CT on March 5, 2021. We ask that you read the information carefully before mailing your ballot. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CHANGE YOUR VOTE.
I reached out to the APFA Account Manager at the Ft. Worth Post Office and she recommends any member who has not received their ballot do the following:
- Place your name in your post office box.
- Speak with your Letter Carrier and make sure they know you are to receive mail at your designated box.
- Set up “Informed Delivery” with the USPS. (This is a free service of the USPS) https://informeddelivery.usps.com/box/pages/intro/start.action
Where can I find information about the candidates?
Candidate information is now available on the elections page on the APFA website. Paper candidate booklets will no longer be provided in the mail with your ballot.
What are the eligibility requirements to vote? How do I determine if I’m a member in good standing?
In order to be eligible to vote, you must be an active member in good standing. A member is considered in good standing so long as they have met their dues obligation, with no dues in arrears for more than sixty (60) days. For your vote to count, you must be an active member in good standing by 1700 CT on March 1, 2021. (APFA Constitution Article II, Section 4.A-C – Article VI, Section 4.B & 4.D)
You may also contact the APFA membership/dues department to confirm if you are in good standing. For assistance with online payments, to pay over the phone, or to check your dues status, you may contact:
- APFA Membership Department at (817) 540-0108 ext. 8153
- APFA Dues Department at (817) 540-0108 ext. 8151
