Since Accelerate has customers from almost every province would it not make more sense to offer prizes to ALL customers that "vote" vs "those in attendance"? Isn't it likely that they can afford the prizes as a result of all depositors? sf-smile

I agree. But would you vote for people you have no idea about? This is silly to send voting notices at all members. At least they could have voting on-line to save a buck and then increase interest rates.

I believe the prizes are offered precisely as an incentive to encourage attendance, so, on those grounds, the policy makes sense.

I don't vote for CU elections, not even for our local one. Maybe I should, as it would be only based on the provided literature. And there is the downfall...how unbiased is the info? Pick the best of what you read?

Picking 'leaders' you do not really know (just reading from pamphlets) is similar as choosing future employee by resume - all amazing achievement, saved zillions to previous company, improved everything so well that we can jump to Communism right away, etc. etc.
How about going by picture and 'love at the first sight'?

:) thus why I don't bother voting for CU elections.

You could always try asking to interview them and asking for references!
