Vote by Mail
Paper ballot packets will be mailed to all voting fellows and members (who have not chosen to vote online) on Monday, October 17, 2016. The packet will consist of a ballot, Voting Guide and a business-reply envelope. The Academy’s election agent must receive the ballot by November 15, 2016. Late ballots will not be considered.
Voting fellows and members may vote only once. If a voter submits their ballot online and by mail, only the mail ballot will be counted.
