I have replied to Jack and another similarly situated member separately, but wanted to offer the following guidance to all members.
It would be worthwhile for members to verify their addresses of record through the AMSAT membership portal at launch.amsat.org. If that address is missing or incorrect, it is almost certain your ballot won't be delivered. If you need to correct the address, please advise me, and pending verification against the voter list, I will send a replacement at the next opportunity (which will be Saturday at the earliest, as I am away from home).
The procedure for an correcting an incorrect address is different from the procedure for deeming a ballot lost in post. As stated earlier, given domestic and international delivery standards and accounting for guard time, a correctly addressed ballot will not be considered lost in post until August 12.

I am an AMSAT life member and very much want to participate in the upcoming election of directors. I have been watching the mail for a ballot envelope from AMSAT and have yet to see one.
Were the ballot envelopes mailed out all at once or are they being sent "batched"? When should I start to worry? Thanks much in advance for your answer.
