FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF DALLAS Dallas, Texas, October 28,1937 NOMINATIONS FOR DIRECTORS To the Member Bank Addressed: In accordance with the provisions of Section 4 of the Federal Reserve Act and my circular dated September 24, 1937, in regard to election of directors of this bank to succeed Pat E. Hooks, Class A director, and A. S. Cleveland, Class B director, whose terms expire December 81, 1937, there is given herein a list of the candidates nominated for such directors, indicating by whom nominated. There is sent herewith to each bank in Group 1 a ballot for use in voting on the candidate for Class B director and to each bank in Group 3 a ballot for use in voting on the candidates for Class A director. There is also enclosed an envelope bearing on its face the certificate in regard to the vote; also a colored envelope marked “ Ballot,” in which the ballot is to be sealed. The ballot and certificate on the envelope must be executed by an officer who has been authorized to cast the vote. A list of designated officers was attached to my circular above mentioned. In order that the ballot may be secret, the name of the bank and of the voting officer should not be written on the ballot, but only on the certificate envelope. (1) After the ballot has been marked (2) It should be placed in the colored envelope marked “ Ballot” and the envelope sealed. (3) After the certificate on the certificate envelope is executed, the colored sealed envelope should be placed within and the certificate envelope sealed. (4) Then this certificate envelope containing the sealed ballot envelope should be returned to me in the enclosed self-addressed envelope. Under the law the ballot must be returned so as to reach me within 15 days after its receipt. The polls will open on November 1 and close at 3 :00 P. M. on November 16, 1937. At that time the ballot box will be opened in the board room of this bank. All of the sealed colored envelopes containing the ballots will first be removed and segregated from the certificate envelopes before any of the colored envelopes are opened, thus insuring the secrecy of the ballot. Then the colored envelopes will be opened, the votes counted and results of the election announced. The candidates are invited to be present or represented on this occasion. While the banks in Group 2 will not vote in this election, this circular is sent to them without forms for their information. Respectfully, Chairman of the Board IMPORTANT It is particularly important that you read carefully and follow exactly the instructions with regard to voting. Failure to do so will result in invalidation of your ballot.
