Board election to be held electronically

The ballot for the national Board of Directors election will be open from Jan. 13 through Jan. 27. Designated voting representatives for each member organization and member individuals will be able to cast ballots electronically.

UNOS partners with VoteNet Solutions Inc., an election software company, to allow voting representatives to view the Board ballot online and register their votes via a secure web application.

On Wednesday, Jan. 13, voting representatives will receive by email a link to the ballot and supporting information about the nominees, and log in information. The voting application will open Jan. 13 and will close on Jan. 27 at 11:59 p.m.

Each member institution with voting privileges may cast one vote. The organization designates one person to serve as a voting representative on its behalf, as well as an alternate if the primary representative is unavailable. People who are individual members are also voting representatives. For any questions regarding the election process, including the name of your organization’s designated voting representative, send an e-mail to elections@unos.org.
