TODAY is the DAY - ALL Delegates, they MUST be signed up by TODAY, May 17, 2021.  

Sign your delegates up TODAY.  Empower your students and your school by signing two FFA members up as delegates.  With allowing voters to vote remotely and in person, this year has the potential to set a record for the most voting members for our State convention elections.  Sign them up!  

Please click here for the Delegate registration form.  NOTICE:  Even if your delegates will be in person for ELECTIONS on June 10, 2021, ALL DELEGATES MUST be registered via our google form.  ALL delegates will be using their own electronic device for voting again this year. We WILL NOT have clickers for voting during elections.  EVEN if you haven’t registered for convention yet, you MUST sign up your delegates by Monday, May 17, 2021.


Frequently asked questions about the system:  

Will the system allow for school addresses?  Yes, Turning Technologies will not be emailing the students, the email address serves as their login, school addresses will work fine.  

How should they select a password?  Encourage your students to pick one they will remember and is unique to them.  

Do students have to have a laptop?  Students can use their phone, ipad, laptop or desktop.  But you should have two devices per delegate, one so they are watching on one device and then voting with the other device.  For example:  they are watching the elections on a laptop and voting via Turning Technologies from their phone.  

Is the system difficult to use?  Turning Technologies is the same system we use for face to face elections.It is easy to use, and the Illinois FFA Board tested the system from our phones and laptops.  I used it- if I managed it with ease, your students are all set.  

Can a student give out their email address and password to others to get more people to vote?  NO, the system only allows ONE device per email address.  The Illinois FFA Board tested this as well, you CANNOT login on more than ONE device per email address and password.  

Will our Chapter Delegates still get a delegate t-shirt?  Yes, they will be in your convention registration packet.  Alumni will be selling convention t-shirts as well as other merchandise again this year.  

My students use Chromebooks, will that be an issue?  Directly from Turning Technologies:  “I’ve never heard of anyone having issues with using the Chromebook.  As long as they can access there should be no issue since nothing needs installed.” 

How do I know the system will work on my device?  We will be able to know and troubleshoot any issues during the Business Session on Friday, May 28, 2021 at 3:00 p.m.
