Shareholders may also return hard copies of proxies to the Inspector of Elections (a business reply envelope was provided in the proxy packet mailed to each Shareholder), or hand deliver them to the election deposit boxes located at the SNC offices in Nome or Anchorage. Shareholders may also vote in-person by ballot at the annual meeting on November 9, 2019 – note that ballots must be requested by 11 A.M. AKDT from the Inspector of Elections the day of the meeting.
