Core voting

I received an email from Craig Cleve saying my vote was declined because I didn't pay my dues on January 14, 2019,

I paid my Core dues that day and the check has been cashed.

So why was my vote declined?

Wheredid my money go from the cash check?

My question is, is this an HONEST election being conducted by Core?
