Online polls, administered by TrueBallot Election Services and Solutions, opened Monday morning. Email "invitations to vote" were delivered to all who were IAPE members in good standing as of Monday, July 13, 2015.
However, even after assurances by Dow Jones that email from trueballot.com addresses would not be intercepted by the Company email filter, many e-ballots were redirected to spam or quarantine folders, or simply not received at all.
Adding to the first-day woes, the TrueBallot website had a glitch of its own for some time, requiring voters to log in, cancel, and log in a second time in order to see their election choice: whether to approve the 2015 IAPE/DJ contract extension or not.
Early reports from the second day of voting suggest that the process is running better, but still is not perfect. A second delivery of email notices was sent to eligible members early Tuesday morning, with most IAPE members reporting ballots received in Inboxes and no difficulty casting their votes.
