Voting Now Open for 2023 Bencher Election
Starting today, Tuesday, Nov. 14, all eligible active lawyers should receive their voting credentials (username and password) from eBallot via their preferred email address. Before casting your ballot, please take a minute to view the Candidate profiles on the Bencher Election website and learn more about the voting process.
Please note that only lawyers with active status as of Oct. 24, 2023 are eligible to vote in the 2023 Bencher Election.
To vote in the 2023 Bencher Election, follow these steps:
- Visit the voting site directly, or use the link found in the email from eBallot.
- Log in using your Law Society of Alberta Member ID and your eBallot-provided password.
- Electronically mark the ballot next to the names of candidates of your choice.
- Follow the instructions on the page to submit your votes.
If you did not receive a copy of your original credentials, check your Junk/Spam folder on your email account. If you need to update your contact information, follow the instructions on the Law Society website.
