Vote Now in the 2018 SBM Election

It is time to vote in the 2018 State Bar of Michigan election. This year, elections are being held for positions on the Judicial Tenure Commission, the Board of Commissioners in Districts D, G, H, and I, and the Representative Assembly in Circuit 7. Unless your address on file is in one of the districts or circuits where there is a contested race, you will only receive a ballot for the Judicial Tenure Commission race.

All eligible members with an email address on file with the State Bar may vote securely online. This can be done by one of two methods. First, on May 25, eligible members will receive an email message informing them it is time to vote. Included in the message will be an embedded link taking the recipient directly to the voting site and a ballot containing only the races for which the member is entitled to vote.

The email will come from with the subject line "Vote Now in the 2018 State Bar of Michigan Election—E-Ballot enclosed" and not from the State Bar. If you have not received your electronic ballot, please check your SPAM filter.

Alternatively, you may reach the voting website from the SBM Member Area at, where you will need to sign in and click on the VOTE NOW button to be directed to the voting website.

All active members who do not have an email on file will receive a paper ballot in the mail.
