PSC elections – April 2021

Vote for union-wide officers

Voting for the election for the PSC Officers and Executive Council, as well as the delegates to the NYSUT and AFT Convention and AAUP Annual Meeting Delegates, will take place beginning on Thursday, April 1 when the ballots are mailed and will continue until Thursday, April 29 at 5:00 p.m. (EST), the time that the ballots must be received via mail or electronically through the American Arbitration Association website. The ballots will be counted on Friday, April 30. Voting will be by secret ballot available at aaaelections.org 24 hours a day throughout the voting period. Paper ballots will be available only by request.

Every eligible member will receive voting instructions via mail and email with instructions and an individualized personal identification number (PIN). The PIN will be printed above the name and address on the pre-printed ballot. Please check email junk and spam folders in case the email was routed there.

HOW TO VOTE

To vote online, log on to the website of the American Arbitration Association (aaaelections.org). Enter in the space provided your PSC Organization/Login ID (this ID will be provided in the voting instructions mailed and emailed to members). There will then be a field to enter your PIN. You will then be provided instructions on how to cast your vote or how to cast a write-in vote.

Voters with missing or damaged voting instructions should request replacements by calling the AAA Duplicate Hotline (1-800-529-5218) Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (EST). This number is to be utilized only for duplicate requests. Members may also request replacements by emailing Sacha Ulerio at ulerios@adr.org.. Voters are asked not to call or email prior to Thursday, April 8, 2021, to allow sufficient time for the delivery of all voting instructions.

The complete election rules and PSC Constitution may be obtained from the PSC website. Relevant sections are summarized in the December 2020 Clarion in the article Notice of Nominations and Elections.
