If you are a lawyer residing in District 6 (Maricopa County), it is time to exercise your right to select a representative to the State Bar of Arizona Board of Governors. Ballots are open May 9 through May 23.

You should already have received a link to the ballot in your email. As we explained in Arizona Attorney Magazine:

“The Board of Governors elections will again be conducted online. Does the State Bar have your email address of record? (Rule 32(c)(3), Ariz.R.S.Ct.)

“A special election will be held this year to elect one member from District 6 (Maricopa County) to serve a two-year term. The newly elected member will fill the District 6 seat held by President Joe Kanefield after he completes his term as President. At that time, Joe will become the immediate past president and will serve one more year on the Board in an ex-officio capacity.”

Here is a link to descriptions of all the candidates.

Do you have any questions? Contact Carrie Sherman at 602.340.7201 or carrie.sherman@staff.azbar.org. She’s managing the election process and could answer most any question you could come up with. I guess you could say Carrie is in charge of democracy here at the State Bar (well, somebody’s got to do it!).

Let’s get voting!
