2013 Election

The 2013 AFS election is now open.

This year, AFS members are electing candidates to three seats on the Executive Board (for three-year, 2014-2016 terms), and to one seat on the Nominating Committee (for a three-year, 2014-2016 term).

You may cast your ballot securely online anytime between now and the deadline of December 31.

You can download and mail in a paper ballot, or vote online. To vote online, go to the ballot URL at

When you click this URL, you will first be taken to the member login page. After you log in, you will be taken to the main election information page, on which we ask you to verify your personal information. We require this verification to ensure that you are a current AFS member and that each member votes only once. Your name will not be linked with the votes you cast.

From this page, you’ll be taken to the ballot page, on which you will find links to information pages for each candidate (each of which contains a biographical summary and a platform statement) and sets of check boxes for you to submit your votes. You can go back and forth between the ballot page and the candidate information pages until you submit your votes by clicking the "Complete Survey" button.
