HOW TO VOTE
The 2021 Rules Vote runs from February 2 to March 4, 2021. It will be conducted via paper and electronic ballots. The voting process is as follows:
1. On February 2, 2021, attorneys eligible to vote will be mailed a 2021 Rules Vote paper ballot with instructions on how to cast their vote. An email will also be sent to eligible attorneys with instructions on how to vote online. To be eligible to vote on the proposed amendments, an attorney must be an active member in good standing.
Be sure to check your spam filter.
Rules Vote emails are sent from the State Bar’s voting provider, Election Services Corporation, and will be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. The election packet and email will contain a voter authorization number (VAN) with instructions on how to vote online. Attorneys may use this VAN and their bar card number to log on to the election website to cast their ballot.
3. Attorneys will also be able to access the voting link on texasbar.com starting on February 2, 2021. Click on the “VOTE NOW” button to access the voting page, and request a VAN Number.
The secure voting system will not allow duplicate votes.
THE DEADLINE TO CAST BALLOTS IS 5 P.M. CST March 4, 2021. Please note that mailed ballots must be received by the deadline.
