Once I cast a vote can I change it?
The rules for balloting will change in the future due to an expected new rule from the Department of Labor and action by the AFA Board of Directors this year. These new procedures require an implementation process expected to be complete by the end of the year. That means this voting process will be familiar to all AFA members – as information becomes available during the ratification process AFA members can access their ballot and recast a vote. Only the last vote cast will be counted by the electronic balloting agency.
