subject to their restrictions with a notice form upon which each member
can indicate approval or disapproval of the proposed amendment, along

vote. Said notice shall advise the member of the date and place
whereupon the votes will be tallied by the Board of Directors, which date
shall be not less than thirty (30) days from the date the notice is mailed to
the member. Said notice shall provide the opportunity for the member to
appear at said time and place to cast their vote in person as opposed to
