Annual Meeting-San Diego
Upon receipt of the ballot packet, members may vote using the mail ballot or online with their member number (blind information that is not printed on the ballot) and the voter PIN number printed on the ballot. The combination of these two numbers permits members to vote in their district election.
* Any active member of the State Bar, in good standing on the date the eligibility list closes, whose principal office for the practice of law is located within a county that is included within the State Bar district in which there is an election, shall be eligible to vote in the 2014 election.
** For 2014, the State Bar will conduct a “hybrid” election that uses a combination of voting by mail ballot and online. A ballot packet is mailed to all eligible members. The ballot packet is similar to the one used in past elections by the State Bar and includes a ballot, instructions, candidate statements, a unique voter PIN number printed on the ballot, and a return mail ballot envelope.
