Look for your annual election ballot package to arrive in August via first-class mail. The envelope will contain a paper ballot and a postage-paid reply envelope. Members will also receive an e-mail with instructions on how they can access the ballot electronically, instead of by mail.

Those eligible to vote include new members as of 30 June and those elevated to member or graduate student member grades on or before that date. Associate members are not eligible.

The member grade requires that you be regularly employed in IEEE-designated fields and have a combination of education and work experience of at least six years. You can apply online for transfer to member grade.

To be eligible to vote, student members graduating between 1 January and 30 June must update their education information online to be elevated to member or graduate student member grade.

Log in to your IEEE account to help guarantee you receive the ballot package by confirming your contact information, member preferences, and education information.
