USCFFLag.jpgOn the occasion of election day, don't forget to vote! Also this is a good reminder to register NOW as a USCF voting member! See details, which also appear in your November Chess Life Magazine, below.

Register to Vote!

Effective with the 2011 Executive Board election, voting members will have to be registered in order to be eligible to vote. Only registered eligible voting members will be sent a ballot.

In order to be qualified to register as a USCF Voting Member and vote in the 2011 USCF Executive Board election, you must be a current USCF member who will be 16 or older on June 30th, 2011.

You must register as a voting member by March 31st, 2011, in order to be eligible to vote in the 2011 Executive Board election, and you must also be a current USCF member for the entire day on May 5th, 2011. (This means that if your USCF membership is due to lapse on or before April 30th, you must renew or rejoin no later than May 4th.)

Your voter registration will lapse if your USCF membership lapses for more than 28 days, and you will need to re-register as a voting member again after you rejoin the USCF. (And you must re-register by March 31st to be eligible in 2011.)

To check your status as a registered voting member, go to http://msa.uschess.org.

To register as a voting member, go to: https://secure2.uschess.org/voter-registration.php

You will need to enter your USCF ID and either your PIN or your birthdate in order to confirm your identity.

Your PIN can be found on the back cover of Chess Life or the TLA Newsletter.
