Ballots Are Due!

Your ballot must be received by 6/17 by 5pm. Make sure to mail it well before then so it arrives in time for your vote to count! 

How to Vote

Thanks to the dues flexibility recently approved by the National Council,
all members who were current on their dues as of Fall 2019 will remain Members in Good Standing
through November 30, 2020!

So: if you are an AEA member in good standing and your current mailing address is up-to-date in the portal,
a ballot will be mailed to you on May 13th, 2020.

There is no online voting this year. Paper ballots only.

I Need a Ballot

If you do not receive your ballot or need a replacement, you have until June 8th, 2020 to request a replacement ballot be mailed to you. We recommend requesting it sooner so you have plenty of time to get your replacement and mail your ballot to be received by the June 17th deadline.

EMAIL
helpdesk@voteGES.com
or call 1-877-455-9367 
(Monday—Friday, 9:00am—8:00pm ET)
to have a replacement sent.
And YES, you can have it sent to wherever
you are sheltering in place!

I Have a Ballot

Here are our #FairWageOnCouncil candidates,
plus Kate Shindle for President! 


Who Do I Vote For?

#FairWageOnCouncil is running 16 core members of #FairWageOnStage for the following Officer and Council seats.
You can vote for all 16 of our candidates!


Why Vote #FairWageOnCouncil?

The #FairWage movement is a grassroots group of rank and file members and is already transforming our union because we are standing together, acknowledging our power, and using our collective voice to demand change.

We need a Council full of progressive and positive thinkers — one that sees how strong Actors’ Equity Association could be, one that will do the work and research necessary to make informed decisions, one that will fortify and expand the rights of members all over the nation, and one that will devote themselves every day to fair wages, inclusion, participation, and engagement.

The 19 current #FairWageOnCouncil members have put forth bold, innovative policy initiatives that will be instrumental in rebuilding and nurturing live theatre in America.  Electing our 2020 candidates will allow them to continue and expand on that work.

Together, let’s make Actors’ Equity Association the strongest it’s ever been!

Thank you for your continued support,
#FairWageOnCouncil
