IEEE's Annual Election - Remember to Vote

The annual election ballots were sent to all eligible voting members via postal mail on 15 August. You can access and return your ballot electronically or use the postage-paid reply envelope included in your ballot package. Ballots must be received by 12 noon CST (17:00 UTC) on 1 October.

All candidates on this year’s ballot participated in a Q&A:

  • What do you believe are the major issues facing the IEEE?
  • What do you think is the number one goal for the IEEE leadership?
  • What qualifies you for the job?

The full list of IEEE Annual Election candidates and their Q&A answers, biographies, accomplishments/activities and statements can be found here. Candidate biographical information is also available within the ballot when accessed electronically.

The Institute has interviewed the three candidates for 2015 IEEE President-Elect: Barry L. Shoop, Frederick C. Mintzer, and Tariq S. Durrani. Learn about who they are, their vision for the future of the organization, and their views on education, mentorship, and emerging technologies can be found here .

We are proud to note that many of the candidates are Signal Processing Society members. Four of the candidates, in particular, have served as Signal Processing Society Officers.

  • Candidates for the 2015 IEEE President-Elect include Board-nominated Frederick C. Mintzer, 2004-2005 SPS President; Board-nominated Barry Shoop and petition candidate Tariq S. Durrani, 1994-1995 SPS President. A conversation with the Board-nominated candidates appears here.
  • Candidates for 2015 IEEE Division Delegate-Elect/Director-Elect for Division IX include K. J. Ray Liu, 2012-2013 SPS President and René M. Garello.
  • Candidates for 2015 IEEE Technical Activities Vice President-Elect, 2015 include: Jose M.F. Moura, 2008-2009 SPS President and Douglas N. Zuckerman.

Other SPS members running for election are:

2015 IEEE Division Delegate-Elect/Director-Elect, Division I: (Societies: IEEE Circuits and Systems Society; IEEE Electron Devices Society; IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society)

  • Maciej J. Ogorzalek, SPS Member (Nominated by IEEE Division I); Rakesh Kumar (Nominated by IEEE Division I) and Renuka P. Jindal (Nominated by IEEE Division I).

2015-2016 IEEE Region Delegate-Elect/Director-Elect, Region 6 (Western USA)

  • Kathleen A. Kramer, SPS Member (Nominated by IEEE Region 6) and Sundaram K. (S.K.) Ramesh (Nominated by IEEE Region 6).

We strongly urge you to vote. Winning candidates often tally just a small percentage of total membership, so your vote can make a big difference.
