BOD Ballots and Overseas Mailing

I remember reading about a fellow members problem in mailing his ballot back 
because of the high exchange rate for postage. 

Might I suggest that if you are in a country that is a member of the 
International Postal Union that you use one IRC (Internation Reply Coupon) and 
place your ballot in an envelope. The IRC can be exchanged at member post 
offices for one air mail postage stamp. IRC's are typically used when sending 
for QSL cards from stations outside your country. 

You can ask your local post office if they will exchange an IRC and that might 
be your best bet. If someone overseas needs an IRC to send back their ballot, 
let me know directly offline and I will send you one. I am, unfortunately, the 
proud owner of about 3,000 of them.
