About 140,000 ballots went out this week to the SAG-aftra membership, with results due to be tabulated on Aug. 20. Richardson, best known as Tim Allen’s co-star on “Home Improvement,” announced her candidacy on June 25 as head of the self-styled progressive Membership First slate.
Howard won elections in 2009 and 2011 for the SAG presidency and then won the post in 2013 against Esai Morales in the first election for the merged SAG-aftra, running each time as the head of the moderate Unite for Strength slate. He announced June 1 that he would seek re-election with Jenny O’Hara as his running mate for secretary-treasurer.
Howard’s current endorsement list includes Alec Baldwin, Lewis Black, Bryan Cranston, Sally Field, Tom Hanks, William H. Macy,
