IMPORTANT

For your information, there is quoted below an extract from Section 4 of the Federal Reserve Act which sets forth
the method of balloting:
“Within fifteen days after receipt of the list of candidates the duly authorized officer of a member
bank shall certify to the chairman his first, second, and other choices for director of class A and class B,
respectively, upon a preferential ballot upon a form furnished by the chairman of the board of directors
of the Federal reserve bank of the district. Each such officer shall make a cross opposite the nam e of
the first, second, and other choices for a director of class A and for a director of class B, but shall not
vote more than one choice for any one candidate. No officer or director of a member bank shall be
eligible to serve as a class A director unless nominated and elected by banks which are members of
the sam e group as the member bank of which he is an officer or director.”
Where there are three candidates involved, a member bank, in making its first and second choices, will be deemed
to have indicated the other candidate as its third choice.
