Deadline Hollywood reports:
The SAG-AFTRA presidential contest will be a two-person race for the first time since 2015, with no third-party or independent candidates vying for the union’s top elected post and splitting the votes.
Only Fran Drescher and Matthew Modine qualified as presidential candidates this time, and only their running mates, Anthony Rapp and Joely Fisher, qualified to run for national secretary-treasurer.
Drescher’s ruling parties, Unite for Strength and USAN in New York, announced their entire slate of candidates earlier today. Modine and Fisher, running on the Membership First slate, are expected to announce their full slate in the coming days.
