Above are links to the 2016 ballot in two different formats – one is a PDF which should be fillable in recent PDF viewers, so you can return an electronic ballot by making your choices and saving the ballot. If that doesn’t work for you, make clear choices by editing the MS-Word file and returning that. Please don’t re-arrange the ballot order, so the people counting these will see ballots that match the paper ones.
Instructions are in the files and reproduced here for convenience.

Each officer election on the ballot has at least one column used to make your choice. If there is only one column, place an X in the box to the right of your choice for that office. If there is more than one column, those columns are used to indicate your second or third choice should a prior choice be ineligible due to a prior win. Please make only one choice in each numbered column, and only one choice in each row
