ALA Election Update

Last year, in 52 days ALA received less than 10,000 ballots. This year, with only ten days since the “polls opened,” ALA has received over 5,000 ballots.

1/4 of all ballots mailed out this year were paper ballots. We can expect a lag time for this participation, but I’m still surprised that ALA has received so few of them. We forget how slow snail-mail is: the paper goes out, the paper sits on the table, the paper must be filled out, the paper must be mailed back.

Keep voting–it’s your association!
