2016 Ratification Vote Now Under Way

At the 2016 convention the Delegate Assembly approved six amendments to the MLA constitution and one resolution. The assembly’s actions are not final, however, since they are subject to ratification by the MLA membership. Members are therefore encouraged to review this year’s ratification ballot and to exercise their right to vote. All members in good standing as of 18 April are eligible to vote. The online ballot is now available (member log-in required); requests for paper ballots must reach the coordinator of governance by Monday, 16 May. The deadline for receipt of ratification ballots is midnight (EDT) on 1 June.
