Your Guide to 2013 ALA Elections Now Available

From the American Library Association:

“Your Guide to the 2013 ALA Elections” contains general information about the ALA presidency, recent ALA presidential initiatives and biographical information about the two presidential candidates. Information about the ALA treasurer and the two treasurer candidates is also provided, as well as information about ALA Council, recent Council actions and links to information about this year’s 76 Council candidates.

Polls will open at 9 a.m. CDT on March 19, 2013. Between March 19 and March 21, the ALA will notify voters by email, providing them with their unique passcodes and information about how to vote online. The polls close on Friday, April 26 at 11:59 p.m. CDT. Although we do plan to implement ballot access via the ALA website, this feature will not be available for the 2013 elections.

On May 3, the Election Committee will meet at the ALA offices to certify the election. Election results will be released following that meeting.
