Friday deadline for ballots in CalPERS' board election

100806 ballot-box.jpgThe deadline to return ballots for CalPERS' Board of Administration election is Friday.

Harvey Robinson is opposing incumbent Michael Bilbrey for one of the two positions up for re-election on the 13-member board. J.J. Jelincic is running to keep his post against challengers Andrew Hopkins, Lorenzo Rios and Kumar Sah.

Terms for both positions run from Jan. 16, 2014, through Jan. 15, 2018.

CalPERS sent ballots to members several weeks ago. To be counted, the forms must be either postmarked or received by CalPERS no later than Friday.

This CalPERS' webpage has details about the election, material about the candidates and information about the Board of Administration.
