Please Vote in the CSW Election!

2020 Electronic Voting Procedures
The Chemical Society of Washington will conduct its election of Officers, Councilors, and Managers with electronic ballots. If you are a full CSW member and have a valid e-mail address on file with The American Chemical Society, then on or about October 11 you will receive an e-mail with instructions for accessing the secure voting website and candidate statements, along with a unique voter ID code. The ballot will be sent to the same e-mail address at which you receive official communications from ACS. If your e-mail account has strong spam filters, please “white list” [email protected] and [email protected] in order to ensure that you receive your voter ID code.

If you haven’t provided an e-mail address to ACS, fear not—anyone without an e-mail address on file, or whose ballot e-mail is returned as undeliverable, will receive a paper ballot with voting instructions and candidate statements. Candidate statements will also be posted on the CSW website ( on or about October 11. As in previous elections, voting will close at 11:59 pm on November 15.

Just click, read, and vote!

Even better—if you, like many of us, are chronically absent-minded, you will receive two reminder e-mails if you have forgotten to cast your ballot. If you haven’t voted in prior CSW elections, please take this opportunity to do so, and help shape the future direction of CSW. If you have questions about the new voting process, or if you do not receive a ballot by October 21, please contact us at [email protected].
