Society for Military History
Election Information

As a member of the Society for Military History, you have the opportunity to select the Society’s leadership by casting your ballot in the SMH election for Vice President, Trustee, and Graduate Student Representative.

Per the Constitution, the election will be conducted via online ballot. On December 4, you will receive an email with a link to the e-ballot. The election will close out on December 18. The sitting vice president runs unopposed for president, and assumes the office upon the termination of the current president’s term. All members will have the opportunity to vote for seven trustee positions. While we normally elect six trustees, we need to fill the vacancy left by the passing of Geoff Megargee. Graduate-student members will also have the opportunity to vote for their representative on the SMH Council.

Please ensure that the email address in your membership profile is accurate. You may access your information on the Membership Portal or by contacting the Business Manager at If you do not receive the e-ballot on December 4, please check your spam folder before contacting us.
