In August all APA members in good standing for 2012 will receive instructions for voting in the 2012 election from Vote-Now, the firm we have retained to conduct this election. Members for whom we have a valid e-mail address will receive their instructions via e-mail; all others will receive instructions via first-class mail. Regardless of the method of notification, all members will once again have the option to vote online or to use a paper ballot. The deadline for receipt of paper ballots will be the close of business on Friday, September 28, 2012. Online balloting will close at 3:00 a.m. Eastern time on Monday, October 1, 2012.
The online ballot will contain links to the biographical sketches and election statements of individual candidates. In addition, several documents relevant to the election are posted here:
- a sample ballot
- the complete set of all candidate sketches/statements
- brief descriptions of the functions of APA officers, directors, and committee members
- the list of officers, directors, and committee members retiring from or continuing in elected office in 2013
- a description of the APA’s method for tabulating preferential ballots
