Dear NABJ Family,

Voting Begins

We'll open mail-in voting for candidates seeking election to the NABJ Board for the 2017-2019 term Friday, June 2, 2017.  You must be a member of NABJ on or before Thursday, June 1, 2017 in order to vote. To renew online, please click HERE.

Also, there is a development in the contest for Student Representative. In the last week, Wilton Jackson informed the Elections Chair that he has decided to withdraw from the race. His decision was honored. There is a chance that his name will appear on some student ballots. If you see it, please note that he is no longer a candidate for Student Representative.

The Elections Committee is working to organize a virtual candidate forum. You will receive more information on the forum in coming weeks.

Here are some important election dates:

Friday, June 2, 2017 – Monday, July 19, 2017 Mail-in voting
Monday, July 10 – Friday, August 11, 2017 – Electronic voting
Wednesday, August 9, 2017 -Friday, August 11, 2017 – On-site voting at the New Orleans convention

You can find answers to many of your election-related questions here. If you have additional questions, don't hesitate to reach out to me at the email below or NABJ election liaison Veronique Dodson at
