SBM Elections begin on Friday, May 27

Electronic ballots for the 2022 State Bar Elections will be emailed beginning on Friday, May 27, 2022, with online voting ending at 11:59 p.m. ET on Wednesday, June 15, 2022.

There are contested races for the Judicial Tenure Commission and the Board of Commissioners in Districts H and I. All active members of the State Bar will receive a ballot for the Judicial Tenure race. Unless your address on file is in one of the districts where there is a contested race, you will not receive a ballot for any other race.

Voting is conducted online. Beginning on May 27, Michigan lawyers will receive an email message with a link to their personal ballot for the race(s) they are entitled to vote. Please DO NOT FORWARD this email; this is your personal ballot information.

PLEASE NOTE: The e-mail will come from with the subject "Vote Now in the 2022 State Bar of Michigan Election—E-Ballot enclosed." The voting site is secure and offers the same level of privacy and anonymity as voting by mail. The system prevents anyone from voting more than once.

If you have questions, contact Marge Bossenbery at or (517) 346-6327, or Carrie Sharlow at or (517) 346-6317.
