Voting for the 2023 AEA Election is Underway!

On Thursday, January 5th, an email was sent from AEA’s elections vendor, Yes Elections (help@yeselections.com), with a subject line “Vote Now 2022-2023 AEA Election & NEA State Delegates” to AEA members who are eligible to vote in the current AEA General Election and who have a valid email address on file with AEA.

Also, Regular Election materials will be mailed directly to individual AEA members by February 6, 2023.

Members who did not receive the emailed election information and/or mailed election materials should email their name, local association name, correct email address and mailing address stating which election material they did not receive to John Thomas, john.thomas@alaedu.org, or Tina Collins, tina.collins@alaedu.org.

Members who DO NOT vote online or electronically are responsible for returning the original ballot they receive from the vendor in a physical condition that will allow it to be processed and tabulated. DELIVERY OF BALLOTS TO THE VENDOR IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE SENDER AND NOT OF AEA OR THE VENDOR. Staples or paper (gem) clips should not be used.

The Regular AEA Election deadline for the Ballots to be received by the vendor is February 24, 2023.
