One person per ABA Member ID number may vote, and a BookWeb login and the store ID number are required. All voting is being conducted electronically, and ballots are due by 11:59 p.m. ET on April 30. Ballots submitted after that will not be counted.

Booksellers nominated by the ABA Board to serve as directors are:

Brechner and Onorati are coming to the end of their first three-year terms on the Board and are eligible for a second three-year term.

All three are standing for election to three-year terms (2020–2023).

The deadline for return of the ballots is Thursday, April 30. Election results will be announced in Bookselling This Week. The ballot also includes space for write-in candidates.
