Balloting Set for ARRL Southeastern Division Director, Vice Director
Balloting will take place this fall to pick a Director and Vice Director in the ARRL Southeastern Division, the only division where incumbents are being challenged for re-election. All incumbent directors and vice directors in the other four divisions in the current election cycle were unopposed for re-election and have been declared elected.

Electronic voting instructions will be sent via e-mail October 1 to all Southeastern Division members for whom the ARRL has an e-mail address. Others will receive paper ballots. Votes will be counted November 15.
Incumbent candidates declared re-elected for new terms were Pacific Division Director Bob Vallio, W6RGG, and Vice Director Jim Tiemstra, K6JAT; Rocky Mountain Division Director Brian Mileshosky, N5ZGT, and Vice Director Dwayne Allen, WY7FD; Southwestern Division Director Dick Norton, N6AA, and Vice Director Marty Woll, N6VI, and West Gulf Division Director David Woolweaver, K5RAV, and Vice Director John Robert Stratton, N5AUS.
