It is time for ND graduates to cast a ballot in the 2010 election for the Notre Dame Alumni Association Board of Directors. The board plays an important role in communicating alumni views and opinions to the University administration, and setting strategic direction for the association. Voting begins January 11 and ends at 5 p.m. EST February 25. Because the alumni association will not be mailing a paper ballot, alumni are asked to update their email information in "Irish Online":http://www.alumni.nd.edu/site/c.luIZLdMOJpE/b.2609617/apps/kb/home/login.asp?signinreq=1&targetURL=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.alumni.nd.edu%2Fsite%2Fpp.aspx%3Fc%3DluIZLdMOJpE%26b%3D2663189&sessionid=2251679305FC4AD198D5E1636FFEA351 to ensure that they receive an email about the election with a link to an electronic ballot. For a hard copy of the electronic ballot, call the Alumni Association at 574-631-6000 to request a ballot be mailed to you.
