Online Election Services
ACSM can assist in managing your regional chapter online election. ACSM staff can create the online ballot and manage the distribution of notification emails to all members eligible to vote.
To utilize this service, regional chapters should submit the following to Heather at least 2 weeks prior to election launch date:
- Word document that includes candidate names, affiliations and degree credentials. You may also provide brief biographies and photos if you choose.
- Complete list of positions to be voted upon along with relevant instructions (e.g. "Vote for 1 candidate" in this category; "Vote for 2 candidates" in this category, etc.). Also please provide the dates on which you would like the election to launch and to close.
- An excel file with the email addresses of all eligible voters
Regional chapters will receive a proof of the online ballot prior to the official launch of the election. A link to the live results will also be provided so the regional chapter leaders may track the results.
