The Applications are In, Let the Elections Begin!

Check your mailbox! Ballots for the Third and United elections will be mailed August 28, 2017.

There are four vacancies on the Third Board, and four on the United Board. Even though the number of candidates is equal to the number of vacancies on each Board, a secret ballot election is still required according to Civil Code Section 5100.

It is important that you vote in your Mutual's election to make your voice heard, and to help establish quorum.

Follow the instructions on your ballot and return them by mail in the provided stamped envelope or drop them off in person at the Laguna Woods Village Community Center.
