This is the replacement:
Yes, just send an email with the request clearly stated.
Annually, following the BoD elections, voting is "reset", so if you want to have them for the upcoming year, you'll need to re-request. I'm having trouble finding the documentation. That SHOULD really be added to the rules where @LisaSelk has linked above (in fact, I thought it had, but clearly it is not there now).
For @LisaSelk : is there a simple way for a person to check whether they are currently able to vote? I assume one could email as above and request voting rights, or request a check to see if they have them, but is there an easier (for everyone) way?
I reckon attending monthly meetings where it's discussed in the context of quorum would be another...
