When you vote, you will be asked to rank the candidates on the ballot. Although ranking all candidates is not required, it is encouraged. Votes for SIOP President-Elect and officer positions will be recorded using the Ware single transferable vote method, also known as the instant runoff method, per the procedures used for APA’s presidential election. Our overall election procedures can be found here.

SIOP values elections that are open and fair, and that are focused on constructive and civil communication. We ask our nominees and our community to enact these values through this process, reflecting and amplifying the positive culture of the profession.
