Elections For 2020 Leadership

Voting Opens Oct. 2, Closes Oct. 25

It’s YLD election season. Worry not. You are not likely to see political ads on your television, yard signs, spam bots inundating your inbox or relentless requests for campaign donations. You may, however, see “vote for me” posts on social media. It takes only a second to like/share, FYI.

If you have been in practice 10 years or less, you are a YLD member and can vote.

Please take time to read the background information about the candidates and be prepared to vote. It’s easy. No polling place to drive to – the electronic ballot with candidates in contested races will be emailed to you on Oct. 1. Polls will open Oct. 2 and remain open through Oct. 25.

Be sure the OBA roster contains your current email address. To verify, log into MyOKBar or call the Membership Department at 405-416-7080 if you are not sure.

Ballots must be cast no later than 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25. If you do not receive a ballot, email nathan@dentonlawfirm.com so we can send you one. Uncontested offices will be deemed elected by acclamation. Election results will be announced at the YLD November meeting to be held in conjunction with the OBA Annual Meeting in Oklahoma City Nov. 6-8.
