Those who receive a print magazine will find their ballot bound in the February issue of the magazine when it arrives. Those who are signed up for a digital magazine will receive their ballots in the mail.
- Every voting member has the right to vote for up to 25 of those running.
- Any ballot marked for more than twenty-five will be discarded.
- A member is not required to vote for the full twenty-five.
The NRA Board consists of 76 members. Twenty-five are elected each year as their three year terms expire and the seventy-sixth Director is elected by members voting in person at the Annual Meeting for a one year term.
The NRA Nominating Committee reviews incumbent and new candidates seeking Board election or re-election and nominates a number in excess of the twenty-five found qualified and who would, in the opinion of the Committee, add to the Board. This year the Nominating Committee nominated 32 candidates including 24 incumbent members and 9 potential new members. In addition 2 non-incumbent candidates were nominated by petition and are running without the endorsement of the Committee.
When the votes are counted, the top twenty-five vote getters will be elected for a three year term and the results of the election will be announced at the Annual Meeting in Dallas.
