This according to our SAG-AFTRA website:

“LOS ANGELES (July 23, 2014)
— SAG-AFTRA is mailing voting informational cards to approximately 137,000 members today as part of the ratification process for the recently negotiated TV/Theatrical contracts. The joint referendum requires a vote on the proposed pacts, the 2014 SAG-AFTRA Television Agreement and the 2014 SAG-AFTRA Codified Basic Agreement, covering motion pictures, scripted primetime dramatic television and new media production”

But, according to the Just filed 2014 LM-2 (Filed with the Department Of Labor)  SAG-AFTRA has 156,894 voting eligible voters:

SCHEDULE 13 – MEMBERSHIP STATUS FILE NUMBER: 000-391

So why aren’t approximately 19,000 active voting eligible SAG-AFTRA members not getting to  vote on the New contract proposal?  Hmmm….does itt have any thing to do with this?
