Once again, Intelliscan Inc., a professional election management firm, will conduct the vote count in the 2008 election. As in the past several elections, eligible voting members will have the opportunity to cast their votes online by visiting APA's Web site at<www.psych.org>, where they will find instructions for voting online. The eligible voting members are members-in-training, general members, fellows, life members, life fellows, distinguished fellows, and distinguished life fellows.

As a cost-saving measure, ballots will be sent using nonprofit postage, and to accommodate possible slight delays in delivery, the Board of Trustees approved an early mailing date of December 22, 2007. At about the time the ballots are mailed, Intelliscan Inc. will send e-mails to those members for whom APA has e-mail addresses, providing them with information on accessing the online ballot in advance. Members who do not receive such e-mails may also vote online but need to wait for the paper ballot for their access information.

The paper ballot will be sent in an envelope along with a booklet containing the photographs and biographies of and brief statements by the candidates for national, member-in-training, and Area offices. The booklet contains information on all candidates, including those for member-in-training trustee-elect (MITTE) and Area trustees. The ballot you receive, however, includes only the offices for which you are eligible to vote. Thus, only members-in-training will receive ballots for voting for the MITTE, and only those members in Areas 2 and 5 will receive ballots for voting for their respective Area trustees.


Members should send an e-mail message to election@psych.org if they believe they are eligible to vote but did not receive a ballot or if they received a ballot and misplaced it. In the event of duplicate voting (paper and online), only the online ballot will be counted. Also, members are invited to send questions, complaints, or suggestions regarding the election process or improving the ballot packet to election@psych.org.
