What if they did?
And, what if you, an eligible SAA voter had been procrastinating, waiting to cast your ballot until the very last day. Yes, Sunday. And then, wham–zombies! So there you are, surrounded by zombies, and on top that, you now must live with the guilt that missed your chance to participate in SAA’s democratic process. You’ll have to live with that awful feeling for the rest of your life (which might be very short, but that’s not important right now). The important thing is that as of yesterday, only 20% of eligible SAA members had voted. So, for that 80%–I’m not saying it would definitely be zombies. It might be a giant squid. It might be killer bees. You might just lose your internet connection at home for some reason. You might even, just maybe, be doing other things on Sunday and forget to log in and vote.
So, why don’t you do it now? And talk to your friends and colleagues about the risk of a zombie invasion this weekend and remind them to vote too.
And, while you’re at it, don’t forget that nominations for the Movers and Shakers in Archives awards are due by this Monday, April 12. Granted, that gives you one more day to recover what whatever disasters might befall you over the weekend, but still, putting together a nomination takes a little bit longer than the SAA voting. So it’s time to stop procrastinating about that too.
Voting is easy. So easy, even a zombie could probably do it. So why don’t you?
