The Writers Guild of America East has announced 32 nominees running for 10 two-year seats on its ruling council.

The WGA East said Monday that mail-in ballots will be sent to the 4,000 members of the WGA East, who can also vote at a Sept. 16 membership meeting. Results are usually announced the day after that meeting.

The 21 candidates for the six open freelance seats are: Andrew Bergman, Robert Levi, Israel Horovitz, David Steven Cohen, Tom Jennings, Leslie Nipkow, Jeremy Pikser, John Auerbach, Susane Lee, Elizabeth Page, Walter Bernstein, Terry George, Richard Vetere, Bernardo Ruiz, Jerome Coopersmith, Gina Gionfriddo, Bobby Spillane, Fred Graver, Richard Wesley, Julian Sheppard and Jenny Lumet. (The order of the listings is determined by WGAE election rules.)

Gionfriddo, Bernstein, Auerbach, Cohen, Coopersmith and Pikser are incumbents. Coopersmith was the only newcomer of the six in the 2008 election.

The 11 candidates for the four open staff seats are Andy Meppen, David Keller, Cath Twohill, Ted Schreiber, Angela Perdos, Kathy McGee, Armando Norat, Brian Morgan, Marta Gibbons, Julia Yoler and Art Daley. Twohill and Daley are incumbents.

In the 2008 election, 444 ballots were cast, in line with the typical turnout for WGA voting with participation levels usually under 20%. Candidates for the WGA West board election, which will also conclude in September, have not yet been announced.
