ALA Online Election Update

The message below my post just came to the Council list.

Zounds! Egad! And my stars! That’s over a 10% increase in voter participation since yesterday morning. Plus now we know what’s going on with the paper ballots. (1/4 of all members are using paper ballots? Let me adjust my bustle!)

John Duke says he will be a gent and if turnout exceeds 15%, we both lose our bets. (I bet on a 5% increase, and he bet 10%.) We may have to buy Keith Fiels a beer!


Here is an update on the progress of our 2004 election as of March 23,

All of the initial mailings and e-mailings will be completed as of today.

As of the end of the day today, we will have mailed out 13,483 paper ballots.

As of March 20th, 42,626 members have received email notices containing voting instructions and passwords.

Additional paper ballots will now be mailed out as they are requested by members.

As of this morning, we have received 4,465 electronic ballots and 2 paper ballots, for a total of 4,467 ballots received.
