Voting in the 2023 ALA/ACRL election begins March 13, 2023, with members receiving an email announcement between March 13-14 containing voting instructions. 

Any individuals whose emails bounced will be sent a "snail-mail" letter with their voting credentials. To be eligible to vote, individuals must have been members in good standing of ALA as well as applicable divisions as of January 31, 2023.
