Bar elections underway.

Bar members in circuits with contested elections for The Florida Bar Board of Governors or the Young Lawyers Division Board of Governors should have received their ballots. Those ballots were scheduled to be mailed around February 26, after this News went to press.

For the second year, Bar members will be able to cast their votes either with the mailed paper ballots or via the Internet. Ballots, either electronic or mailed, must be received by the Bar's election company,, by midnight March 21.

The Bar Board of Governors has one contested race in each of the Fourth, 13th, 15th, and 17th circuits, while the YLD board has contested races in the

16th Circuit and for an out-of-state seat.

If a runoff results, runoff ballots will be mailed and counted in April.

Electronic ballots can be cast by going to the website. Bar members will need their Bar number, as well as a special access number that is included in the ballot and election materials. The site also has links to platform statements and photos of the candidates.

Candidates for the Bar Board of Governors had their platform statements printed in the February 1 Bar News.
