A change in balloting is coming!
The Committee on Nominations and Elections has announced balloting changes effective with the ACS 2017 National Election for President-Elect 2018, two Directors-at-Large (2018-2020), and for Directors for Districts III and VI (2018-2020). Balloting will be conducted online, with the option to receive a paper ballot upon request. Previously, balloting was conducted primarily by paper ballot, with the option to vote online.
Balloting will be open September 29 through October 27, 2017. ACS members eligible to vote will receive information in early September from Survey and Ballot Systems (Direct Vote Plus™) on how to request a paper ballot.
All ACS members who are considering running for an ACS National Office by petition are strongly encouraged to contact the Office of the Secretary (202-872-4461) to inform the Secretary of their intentions to run, and to receive pertinent information BEFORE they begin sending out petition forms to collect signatures for nomination.
