The ballot is now open.  It can be accessed at:  http://www.cedadebate.org/may2012ballot

Ballots are due by midnight (central), Sunday, May 13.

Voting requires your account on the main CEDA site to have voting enabled (different than the forums).  Please login at the main site to confirm you can access the ballot (it is restricted to accounts eligible to vote).  It is easy to enable voting.  I can do it by checking a box.  But, if you wait until late on the 13th, I might not get your request in time.  More than one person from a school can have voting enabled.  This helps insure your school actually votes.

The ballot also includes the topic rotation amendment passed at the recent business meeting.

There are three pages to the ballot.  The full slate of controversies and the text of the amendment are posted on the pages.

If you need help accessing the ballot, please let me know.  Email me at jeffrey dot jarman at wichita dot edu.

Jeff
