We are using electronic voting for this election. All current AAR members have been sent an email message from SurveyMonkey with a link to access the electronic ballot for the elections. The email message represents the “key” to the electronic ballot. A paper ballot is mailed to members whose email addresses are not on file.

If you are a current AAR member and have not received the message with a link to the elections ballot, please check your spam or junk email folder.

If you have opted out of receiving messages from SurveyMonkey, you will need to go to this website to opt back in. Once completed, please contact us at so that we can arrange to send you the SurveyMonkey message with the link to the ballot.

If you are still unable to locate the email message from SurveyMonkey, please notify us via email at

If the email address listed in your AAR member record was not correct at the time the ballot was sent, unfortunately you will not be able to vote in this election cycle. We are unable to send the ballot to a different email address, due to the potential for ballot duplication.

Voting reminders, ballots for those who have opted back in to SurveyMonkey, and ballots for new members (who have joined since the election opened) will go out every Monday during the election period.

Thank you for your participation!
