Vote Now! (and a Head's Up on Your ASLH Membership)

"The annual ASLH election is now in progress," announces a notice that's just up on the website of the American Society for Legal History.  "From August 15 to September 15, members in good standing of the ASLH will be voting for 3 elections (president-elect, board of directors, nominating committee)."  There's more on procedures for voting on-line, but right now we want to draw your attention to the following paragraph:
If you have not received a ballot but expected to receive one, it means that you are considered a lapsed member of the society.  [Unless the email ended up in your spam folder.]  Please contact Cambridge University Press to renew your subscription to the LHR and simultaneously renew your membership with the ASLH. Any lapsed member who renews their membership via CUP before September 1 may send proof of that renewal to either Patricia Minter ( or Sally Hadden ( to be sent a ballot in the current election. All members who renew prior to September 1 will receive an email ballot on September 2 from Vote-Now. Individuals who renew after September 1 will not vote in the 2017 election.
And if you've never been a member of ASLH, now's a great time to join!
