Remember to Vote in the Annual Election

Ballots will be available by August

6 June 2014

Look for your annual election ballot package to arrive in August via first-class mail with a ballot and a postage-paid reply envelope. Members will also receive instructions via e-mail, explaining how they can access and return the ballot electronically.

Those eligible to vote include new members as of 30 June and students 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 an IEEE-designated field and have a combination of education and work experience totaling at least six years. You can apply online for transfer to member grade.

To be eligible to vote, student members graduating this year 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.
