It’s time to vote in the ALA/YALSA Election! On March 16, ALA began emailing ballot information to all members whose memberships were current as of Jan. 31 of this year. The email contains the URL and login for your specific ballot. It is the only way for you to access your ballot.
If you haven’t received your election information via email, contact ALA at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 1-800-545-2433,’ ext. 5, to verify your eligibility and get your ballot information sent to you.
Voting will be open until April 23, and results will be available on April 30.
