Long Voting Period!

I learned this week part of why the voting period for president-elect lasts a month: the time period is in the bylaws of the Virginia State Bar Council, apparently a vestige of a time when electronic voting did not exist

and mail was very slow. The ballot period was not, however, in the first bylaws of the VSB when it was created in 1938; see the original bylaws in the attached excerpt from the 1939 annual report, courtesy of the State Law Library. I hope to report next week on when the ballot period was created and why it was made so long.
