Ballots will be provided only to those Association stockholders who are eligible to vote. The ballots will be safeguarded by the CEO’s designee, both before the time of distribution or mailing to stockholders and after the time of receipt, until disposal. The tellers’ committee will validate all ballots. No director, officer, or employee of the Association will make any public announcement of the results of the election until the results have been validated. The CEO, or the CEO’s designee, will announce the results to the stockholders. An independent third party or each member of the tellers’ committee that tabulates the votes, will sign a certificate that states they will not disclose to any person any information about how or whether an individual stockholder has voted, except if requested by the Farm Credit Administration.
