Changes and corrections to nominations may be made until 5:00pm on Monday, February 7.
Corrections may only be made to nominations submitted before the February 3 deadline. New nominations will not be accepted after 5:00pm on February 3.

All-Sectional voting will be open from midnight on Friday, February 11 until 5:00pm on Saturday, February 26.
