How you’ll hear from us
Because all voting will be conducted electronically, we need to make sure we can reach every member via email. If you prefer to receive the ballot at a different email address, update your information by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also recommend that you add Constant Contact as an approved sender (directions at end of this article). If CMS does not have your email address or if you have opted out of receiving ASAP or any other CMS electronic publications in the past, email email@example.com or call 720-858-6312.
What does it mean to add an address to a safe senders list?
Email newsletters can be blocked or filtered into your email bulk folder especially now that email filters are focusing more strongly on “grey mail” or commercial mail. As a result, you may miss important announcements or alerts from CMS, like this one for the all-member election.
