We investigate different ensemble learning techniques for neural morphological inflection using bidirectional LSTM encoder-decoder models with attention. We experiment with weighted and unweighted majority voting and bagging. We find that all investigated ensemble methods lead to improved accuracy over a baseline of a single model. However, contrary to expectation based on earlier work by \newcite{Najafi2018} and \newcite{Silfverberg2017}, weighting does not deliver clear benefits. Bagging was found to underperform plain voting ensembles in general.
