To correct this problem, a special election has been set up at http://bscintra.buffalostate.edu/vote/ for only these employees. Votes must be cast between Monday, April 19, and 11:59 p.m. Friday, April 23. Voting for faculty and professional staff concluded on April 16, and this error did not affect the University Faculty Senate election. The Senate Bylaws Committee apologizes for the error.
