NAKHE Elections Begin October 1st

posted on Sep 23, 2021

The 2021 NAKHE elections for the offices of President-elect and Vice President-elect of the association will run from Friday, October 1 through Saturday, October 30.

On October 1, an email message containing a unique ballot link with a random, secret access key will be emailed to current professional, emeritus, and student members. (Associate and concurrent members do not participate in NAKHE elections.) The email will come directly from a secure online voting website called “ElectionBuddy”. The "From" name on emails to voters will be "ElectionBuddy Elections", not NAKHE.

To vote, voters click on a website link contained in the email message, access their ballot with their unique access key, and enter their choice for President-elect and Vice President-elect. All votes are confidential and cannot be seen by others, including election administrators. A confirmation email is automatically sent to the voter once the voter submits their ballet. Election administrators may view the election results only after the election has ended.

Please be on the lookout for an email from and cast your vote! Your opinion matters!
