Look for your annual election ballot package to arrive in August via first-class mail. Included with the paper ballot and a postage-paid reply envelope is information about how to access and return the ballot electronically.

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 may not vote in the annual election.

To apply for transfer to member grade, complete this form. Member grade requires that the person be regularly employed in IEEE-designated fields and have a combination of education and work experience of at least six years.

Student members or graduate student members graduating between 1 January and 30 June should be sure to update their education information to avoid missing being elevated to member and the opportunity to vote in the annual election.

To help ensure you receive the ballot package, review your contact information, member preferences, and education information.
