The counting of IAM members’ votes for the election of IAM Grand Lodge Officers is underway and will proceed daily until all votes are tabulated. The count began May 7, 2014 at IAM Headquarters in Upper Marlboro, MD.

The tabulation is being performed under the direct supervision of U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) representatives. Candidates and others are being allowed to watch the counting and tabulation of ballots. Offices up for election include International President, General Secretary-Treasurer and in the United States, eight General Vice Presidents.
