Vote electronically for SPJ board and regional coordinators during EIJ 2020

The race for the White House isn’t the only election drawing national attention. The Society of Professional Journalists this month elects a new slate of board members and regional coordinators to lead the torch-bearer of journalistic excellence and freedom into the next year.

SPJ members will elect national and regional leaders during the annual Excellence in Journalism national convention, which this year will be held online from Sept. 12 to 13. Chapter delegates once elected officers and board members, but now ALL members can cast their votes using an online voting system.

The SPJ national headquarters has been sending emails to members directing them to candidate information on the SPJ “Election Central” page. Connect and learn more about candidates in the Meet the Candidates section.

Some of the candidates also have posted profiles and Q-and-As on blogs, their own websites or social media pages.

Look for an email from about the elections. Voting opens at noon Easter time Sept. 11 and closes at noon Eastern time Sept. 13. Results will be announced at the conclusion of EIJ on Sept. 13 at 4:45 p.m. Eastern time. 

Make sure your email address is current to receive the voting instructions and electronic ballots. If you have a new email address, please contact Matthew Kent, SPJ national program coordinator, at, so you’ll be sure to get your electronic ballot.

If you don’t receive a ballot for some reason, check your spam folders. Still not there? Email and provide your name, email address and SPJ member number. 

Once cast, all votes are final and cannot be changed.
