Clubs are entitled to one elector for each 25 members or major fraction thereof.  The major fraction being 13 it follows that a club with 37 members is entitled to one elector, with 38 members, two electors.  A significant change in voting was enacted at the recent Council on Legislation and proxy voting is now allowed.
MOP  15.050 Conference Voting
“A club may designate a proxy for its absent elector(s). The proxy may include a member of its own club or a member of any club in the district in which the club is located.  The proxy designation must be certified by the president and secretary of such club.”  
An elector and proxy form is attached for your convenience.  Give this process your full attention.   Club elector names are due no later than May 10, 2019.  The District belongs to our sixty two clubs and the District Business Meeting allows our clubs to exercise their rights as stakeholders in Rotary District 6250.
Yours in Rotary,
Debbie Fox-Schroeder
Secretary, Rotary District 6250
