Vote Now and Avoid the Lines

David Alan Grier


Worried about the long lines at IEEE CS elections. Of course not. There won’t be any lines to cast ballots. Do you know why? It’s because of the contributions of our members. Over the past 50 years, our members invented and perfected the technology for the Internet. Because of their hard work, they created a technology that makes it easy to vote for the leadership of the Computer Society (and to do a few other things).

Our members could not develop, publicize or standardize their contributions without good society leadership. They will not have that good leadership without your vote. So go to our election web site, https://www.computer.org/web/election/, and vote for President-Elect, First and Second Vice President and 6 members of the Board of Governors. You’ll be supporting your fellow members for 2019.
And you should do it now, because there won’t be any lines.
David Alan Grier
2018 Election Committee Chair


Make the Right Decision, Vote!

Dear Member,
It is time to vote for the IEEE Computer Society Leadership. The polls are open at (). Go there to cast your vote.
The Computer Society needs strong leadership and it needs your participation to get such leadership. The most important work of the Society are the tasks that it does for members, its support for conferences, publications, standards, and educational activities. All of these activities are done by volunteers, including reviewers and various committee and board members for conferences, publications, education, membership, and standards. All of these volunteers donate a great deal of time and talent to their work. And they make their best contributions when they are supported by the best leaders.
So go to the web site. You’ll be voting for President-elect, First and Second Vice President, and for six members of the Board of Governors. Your choice will help select a good leadership team for 2019. It’s what the members of this Society deserve.
Election of officers to one-year terms and of Board members to three-year terms, each beginning 1 January 2019, will be by vote of the membership as specified in the Society Bylaws. Ballots must be returned no later than 12:00 Noon EDT USA time on Monday, 24 September 2018.
Results of the election will be posted on computer.org and announced in the December issue of Computer.
Hironori Kasahara, 2018 IEEE CS President
