1477 Degray v. MDA-UAW Local Union 571

Case No: 1477


While we find it unfortunate that a rather rigid application of the absentee ballot regulations has disenfranchised a number of otherwise eligible voters in the Local Union 571 election to an extent sufficient to have possibly affected the outcome of the election for Guide, there is no suggestion that the Election Committee was influenced by any improper motivation. The decision not to count the ballots received after the date of the election is consistent with the requirements of the Constitution and was within the discretion of the Election Committee. There is no basis for us to overrule its judgment.
