OPA Board of Directors ballots due back Aug. 9
OCEAN PINES — Ballots for the 2012 Ocean Pines Association Board of Directors election were mailed to property owners July 12, and must be returned Aug. 9.
Five candidates — Mark Venit, Bill Cordwell, Bill Wentworth, Sharon O’Hare and Marty Clarke — are vying for two seats on the board. Residents may vote for two candidates only, and no write-in votes will be permitted. Ballots may be returned by mail, or via a drop box located in the police station inside the administration building next to White Horse Park, which is open 24 hours every day. Ballots must be returned by 6 p.m. on by 6 p.m. on Aug. 9.
The ballots will be counted the following day, Aug. 10, and results will be announced during the annual OPA meeting at 10 a.m. on Aug. 11.
Each candidate’s position on the ballot was determined by a drawing last month. Venit, who was recovering from surgery at the time, sent a representative to draw for him in his absence.
