Individual MAC members in good standing on January 31, 2017 can cast their votes online between February 13 and March 5, 2017.  Beginning with the 2017 election, MAC has adopted a fixed membership join/renewal date for individuals to participate in the annual election, and moved the start of the election to the second Monday in February.
