January 26 2015
Good morning Tir-y-Don,
After an unexpected delay the polling forms have been placed
in the hands of the USPS and are on their way to you. I
expect everyone should receive their polling by Wednesday
(Thursday at the latest). If are a paid member and have not
received your polling form by Thursday, please contact me
off list and I will look into it.
Also, we have received the ok from Her Majesty to extend to
deadline for returns to February 6. All forms must be
postmarked by this date. While we do have the extension, I
still encourage you to fill out the form and return it using
the enclosed stamped envelope as soon as possible. The
sooner they are returned, the sooner Their Majesties can
make an informed decision.
One more note, you may notice that the letters from
candidates are not included in the mailings. You can find
them on the FB group devoted to the polling or on this website in the link below.
If you have any questions about the polling, please feel
free to contact me.
Master Jean Claude
You can review the Letters of Intent by clicking
The Baronial Straw Polling is now underway!

You can download the updated voting form
Straw poll guidelines:|
The official polling form will be distributed via:
1) The special Nod-y-Rit published on November 20th
2) Published on the Tir-y-Don Discussion page on Facebook.
3) Contact Thora, Tnek or Tannis for a copy.
The polling will ask barony members to rank the candidates
1-5, with one being the first choice, two the second choice,
down to number 5. These numbers will be recorded on a
spreadsheet by the members of the committee and the results
tallied. The three candidates with the lowest scores will be
placed on the formal polling to take place in January 2015.
While the chance of a tie for 3rd place is very small,
should a tie happen it will be broken by a roll of the die.
High number will be placed on the polling.
Forms may be returned to the committee between 20 November
2014, 7 December 2014 at 2 pm. Please note the
different methods have different deadlines.
