REALTOR members: Vote in GCAAR's election through Nov. 22

GCAAR’s 2021 board election is now open. REALTOR® members should have received an email on Nov. 2, 2020 from containing voter instructions and a unique link to begin voting by electronic ballot.

Didn't receive your ballot?

First, take these steps:

  1. Confirm whether you are a GCAAR primary or secondary member. Only these two member types are eligible to vote in the election, per GCAAR’s bylaws.
  2. Check your spam or junk email folders to make sure the email didn’t end up there.

If, after taking the two steps above, you still need assistance obtaining your ballot, please email

Please review the final list of 2021 board nominees below and complete your ballot before the election closes on Nov. 22 at midnight.
