CEDA Topic/Amendment Ballot

The ballot is now available. 2011-2012 CEDA member schools may vote. You must have an account at the main CEDA site AND have that account coded to vote. I can authorize multiple accounts to vote to insure that your school does vote. But, please do not wait until the 18th to figure out if you can vote. The ballot is available at: http://www.cedadebate.org/july2012ballot

Ballots are due by midnight (central), Wednesday, July 18. The winning topic will be announced on Friday, July 20.

The final wording for the topics is below.

Also, there is one constitutional amendment -- it changes CEDA's organizational structure from regions to conferences. The full text of the amendment is available at: http://www.cedadebate.org/forum/index.php?topic=3613.0.
