You’ve got until 1 October—a month earlier than usual—to return your annual election ballot, which was sent out in August.
In addition to the two candidates for 2009 IEEE President-Elect, 33 others are running in 15 election categories in IEEE divisions and regions, as well as in the IEEE Standards Association, IEEE Technical Activities, and IEEE-USA.
Those on the ballot represent a diverse group of people dedicated to serving the IEEE membership and, perhaps of equal importance, can afford to devote the time to their prospective responsibilities.
Members who paid their dues in full as of 30 June at member grade or higher are eligible to vote. Graduate student members of IEEE also may vote.
Marked ballots must be received by the election vendor in Eden Prairie, Minn., by noon U.S. Central Time (17:00 Greenwich Mean Time) on 1 October. Members can also access the ballot and related materials electronically. To learn more, visit the election site at http://www.ieee.org/elections.
