Kismet Shrine’s elections will be held on December 7th, 2020 at 8pm sharp. This will be an in-person meeting at our Hicksville Shrine Center. In addition, per Imperial bylaws, we have arranged a satellite location you may choose to attend at – Babylon Masonic Temple, 250 West Main Street, Babylon NY. There is no remote (e.g. Zoom) option to participate in elections.

We ask all Nobles who wish to attend (at either location) to arrive 15 minutes before the meeting begins so that current dues cards may be checked and safe distancing seating arranged. All attendees are required to wear masks that completely cover their mouth and nose while inside the Shrine Center.

If your dues are not paid up through 2020 you must make payment via before Monday in order to be allowed in for elections. How do you know if you are paid up? If your dues card has a “2020” sticker then you have paid, otherwise you have not. No dues payments can be accepted on the evening of the meeting.

To keep the elections moving we also ask that Nobles bring a pen or pencil as paper ballots will be used for the voting. We will elect our Divan for 2021 as well as two trustees and two Iowa Corporation representatives (to vote on behalf of Kismet at the next Imperial Session in July).

Keep an eye out for any additional emails during this next week should any county or state Covid-19 gathering regulations change.
