Elections: What Members Need to Know about Online Voting
Members received an email with their E-ballot on Monday, Nov. 14. The sender address was “LSBA Election Admin” and the Subject Line referenced “Vote now in the LSBA 2016-2017 Election.” The email includes a link to the voting website. On the voting website, members must type in their 5-digit member ID number and birth date to access the ballot. Ballots will only include races for which the member may cast a vote.
Members who do not have an email address, or members preferring to vote from the LSBA website, may log-in from the LSBA website to a special page and will be asked to enter the same credentials (5-digit member ID and birth date). The “Vote Now” icon will be active from Nov. 14 through the end of the voting period on Dec. 12.
