The ballot is now available.  Ballots are due by midnight (central), Wednesday, July 17.  The ballot can be accessed at:  www.cedadebate.org/1314resolution.

Only member schools are eligible to vote (2012-2013 membership year).

You need an account on the main CEDA site (not the forums).  The account must be marked as eligible to vote.  Most directors have an account.  If you need me to authorize your account to vote, just let me know.  More than one person can be given access to vote (if you need to assign that to someone else).

If you get a message that says you are not authorized to vote, try logging in again.  That usually fixes the problem.

There are 10 resolutions for consideration.  Please review the list carefully (they may have been slightly re-ordered from previous versions of the list).  The full list, with the numbers used on the ballot, is below.  Attached is a cheat sheet with an explanation of each resolution.

The winning resolution will be announced on Friday, July 19.
