2018 D.C. Bar General Elections: Frequently Asked Questions

Voting for the D.C. Bar elections has ended. Results will be published soon.

Q: How do I vote online?

A: Visit the online ballot to vote by May 25. 

Q: How do I request a paper ballot?

A. Email: elections@dcbar.org and request a paper ballot by May 14, 2018. No paper ballots will be sent to requests received after that date.

Q: What if I do not have or do not know my user name and password?

A: The voting web page provides instructions on how to retrieve your username and password.  If you need additional help, you may call Member Services at 202-737-4700 x3475 or email at memberservices@dcbar.org for log-in assistance.

Q: If I requested a paper ballot, can I still cast my vote online instead of using the ballot? 

A: Yes, but voting online will invalidate your paper ballot. If you vote online and also return your paper ballot, the first ballot received will be official. Once your ballot has been cast, you will no longer be able to access online voting.

Q: Once I cast a paper ballot, can I change my vote online?

A: Once you cast your vote, whether by paper ballot or electronically, your vote is final. If you cast a paper ballot, you will only be able to access online voting if your paper ballot has not yet been received and processed. Whichever vote is received first is official.

Q: What happens if I vote online while waiting for the arrival of a requested paper ballot?

A: If you vote online, you will not be able to cast a paper ballot.

Q: Who can I contact for other questions I have about the D.C. Bar’s 2018 general elections?
