Q: How do I request a paper ballot?
A: The deadline for requesting a paper ballot, April 15, 2013, has passed.
Q: How do I vote online?
A: Vote here.
Q: Will I need to know my user name and password to vote online?
Q: What if I do not have or do not know my user name and password?
A: On the election login page, click the link that says “Don’t know your username/password?” in order to have the login information sent to the e–mail address listed in your D.C. Bar membership record. If you do not have an e–mail address on file with the D.C. Bar or if your e–mail address is not current, you may call the Member Service Center at 202-737-4700, ext. 3475, to request your login information.
Q: 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: If I requested a paper ballot this year, will that information be retained for next year, allowing me to receive a paper ballot automatically next year without requesting it?
