THE INSTITUTE Look for your annual election ballot package to arrive in August via first-class mail with a postage-paid reply envelope. You’ll also receive instructions by email explaining how you may access and return your ballot electronically.

Those eligible to vote include new members as of 30 June and students elevated to member or graduate student member grades on or before that date. Associate members are not eligible to vote.

To be eligible, student members graduating this year between 1 January and 30 June must update their education information online to be elevated to member or graduate student member grade.

Log in to your IEEE account by 30 June and confirm or update your contact information, your election communication preferences, and education information. That will help guarantee that a ballot is created for you and provided to you in accordance with your communication preferences. Visit the IEEE Annual Election website for more information.
