You can vote for up to three candidates. Candidate statements will be published in the June issue of American Woodturner. There are two ways to vote:
1) by electronic ballot, available on the AAW website, or
2) by paper ballot; PLEASE NOTE, if you would like to cast your vote by paper ballot, please request a paper ballot be sent to you by calling or emailing the AAW at 877-595-9094 or inquiries@woodturner.org.
