mailLook for your annual election ballot package to arrive in August via first-class mail. All eligible members are slated to receive a paper ballot and a postage-paid reply envelope. Included is information about how to access and return the ballot electronically.

New members as of 30 June, as well as those elevated to member or graduate student member on or before that date, may vote.

The usual booklet with the candidates’ biographies will be mailed only to members who voted by paper ballot in last year’s election and to those who chose to have the booklet mailed to them this year in their Web account member preference profile. The booklet will not be mailed to new members or to members who submitted their ballots electronically last year, did not vote in last year’s election, or updated their Web account preference to not receive a booklet. Please review your contact information, preferences, and education information, and update them if need be to help ensure you receive the ballot package.
