Message from the President: 2015 CSW Electronic Elections Procedures

The CSW Nominations and Elections Committee is proud to present an outstanding slate of candidates for the 2015 election. Candidates are running for positions as Officers, Councilors and Managers with terms beginning in 2016.

Detailed candidate information, including biographies and statements are listed in alphabetical order for each office on the candidate slate pages. Candidate statements will also be available with your ballot. Candidate statements for National offices and CSW offices are posted on the Capital Chemist website in our new Elections section. Take a look and get to know the people running!

By participating in our annual election you will play an important role in deciding the direction of the Chemical Society of Washington. Voting begins October 15 and is restricted to members of the Chemical Society of Washington.

How to Vote:

Electronic Voting:
If you are a full CSW member and have a valid e-mail address on file with The American Chemical Society, then on or about October 11 you will receive an e-mail with instructions for accessing the secure voting website, along with a unique voter ID code. If your e-mail account has strong spam filters, please “white list” elections@vote-now.com and
election.ballot@votenow.com in order to ensure that you receive your voter ID code.

Mailed Ballots:
CSW members without an email address in their ACS member record, those who have opted out of CSW email communications, or whose ballot e-mail is returned as undeliverable will receive a paper ballot package with voting instructions and candidate statements.

Voting deadline: 

The deadline for voting is November 15, 2015 at 11:59 p.m. EDT. The internet voting system will shut down at exactly at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on November 15, 2015.

Results will be announced on the Capital Chemist website and in the December Issue.

We want CSW to be representative of its members, but we need your help! This is your chance to make your voices heard! Thank you in advance for your participation and if you have questions about the new voting process, or if you do not receive a ballot by October 21, please do not hesitate to contact us at csw@acs.org.
