Marc Sher, Forum Elections Coordinator
The election results are now in.
The winners are:
- Chair-Elect: Caroline Herzenberg
- Vice-Chair: George Lewis
- Executive Committee: Mark Goodman, Sherrie Preische
There were 640 votes submitted (only somewhat more than 10% of our membership!). Somewhat surprisingly, there were a larger than usual number of people who voted twice---once after the first announcement and once two months later after the second announcement. There were 65 such duplications. It turns out that 50 of these had some differences, and so (in accordance with agreed-on procedures) the first was counted. I did check to see how things would have changed if the second had been counted, and it would have resulted in a net shift of three votes (less than the expected root-N), and wouldn’t have changed the outcome. I will try to see if someone can rewrite the script to check voter names to send a warning if they have already voted, so that this issue will not be relevant in the future.
