OVA Election Ends, Results in July

         Oakmont’s election is over, but the results won’t be known until the postponed annual meeting and ballot-counting Monday, July 6, the delay an effect of the coronavirus emergency which has stopped public gatherings.

            There are 1,445 ballots to be counted, easily topping the 802 required for a quorum. Members also may turn in ballots at the annual meeting.

            Four directors are seeking re-election to the four board seats on the ballot, with the only question to be decided is which one receives the fewest votes. The fourth-place finisher will serve a one-year term, the others two-year terms.

            Ballots are in the hands of the inspector of elections, Grapevine Property Management in Rohnert Park, and will be brought to Oakmont the morning of July 6. After the 10 a.m. annual meeting in the Berger Center a team of volunteers organized by Nancy Caldwell will count the ballots under the inspector’s supervision. The board will meet that afternoon at 2 o’clock for its yearly organizational meeting.

            Until then, the president and other officers are expected to continue in their roles.
