How To Vote

Members have three voting options in Cherryland’s board of directors election. Regardless of the voting option, the first ballot received by our election administrator, Survey & Ballot Systems (SBS), is the ballot that will be counted.

To vote through SmartHub, access your online ballot by logging into your account via our website (voting unavailable via the SmartHub mobile app), select the “Vote Now” button in the upper, right-hand corner of the screen and follow the instructions given on the board election website.

If you do not wish to use SmartHub, go to the board election website, enter your ballot I.D. and election passcode printed on the back of your May issue of Michigan Country Lines (see example to the right) or in the email from SBS, and follow the instructions given on the board election website.
