Voting eligibility & process

Please see Faculty Code § 1-4 for information on eligibility for voting.

On March 30, 2018, all members of the Voting Faculty will receive an email with a unique, individualized link to the balloting website.  The ballot email will carry the subject line “Faculty Elections Ballot 2018.”

To vote, simply click the balloting link and proceed through the pages to make your selections for each race for which you are eligible to vote. (The ballot will only offer you the races for which you are eligible to vote.) At the end, hit “submit,” and your vote will be registered.

If you believe you are eligible to vote but did not receive (or cannot find) your ballot, please contact our office right away 919-962-2146 or
