Members: time to do your civic duty and vote for representatives to lead the State Bar of Michigan in the coming years. Today you will receive an electronic ballot for the 2017 SBM elections via e-mail. If you don't have an e-mail address on file, you will receive a paper ballot. You have until 11:59 p.m. on June 15 to cast your votes (or get your ballot in the mail to be counted).
There are contested races for the Judicial Tenure Commission, the Board of Commissioners in Districts B, E, H, and I, and the Young Lawyers Section Executive Council in District 3. Unless your address on file is in one of the districts where there is a contested race, you will only receive a ballot for the Judicial Tenure Commission race.
All eligible members with an e-mail address on file with the State Bar may vote securely online. This can be done by one of two methods. The first way is to access a secure link directly to the voting site in the e-mail from firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line, "Vote now in the 2017 State Bar of Michigan election – e-ballot enclosed." The first way is to access the voting website via the member area of www.michbar.org, where you will need to sign in and click on the VOTE NOW button to be directed to the voting website.
