More About Election
All AAG members may vote. Information about the nomination and election process is available in "Section 2. Methods of Nomination and Election" of the Constitution and Bylaws of the Association of American Geographers.
The AAG's 2014 election will take place through an online voting system again this year. The online procedure makes voting easier for AAG members, and votes cast online are conveniently managed, confidential, secure, backed-up, and certified.
All eligible voters receive an email with an ID voting password and a link to a voting page where they will authenticate their identity. Once authenticated, the voter will have access to a tamper-proof electronic ballot. Once the ballot is completed and submitted, the results will be encrypted and kept anonymous. The voter will then receive a receipt and will be prevented from voting in the same election a second time.
Paper ballots for those who requested them will be counted at the end of the election process and added to electronic totals. Final results will be published in March.
