Members will be able to vote for one candidate for the EC and up to two for the BPR. No member may vote more than once for any individual candidate, and no votes may be changed once they are submitted
Voting will conclude on December 14, 2016, at 11:59 PM PST, and results will be published within 72 hours.
The election is being administered by the WGPO Nominations and Elections Committee, whose members are Lynda Finn, Marcia Wade, and Ruth Hamilton. The committee shall be the arbiter of any disputes. Concerns or questions should be addressed to any of the committee members. Technical questions or problems should be addressed to Henry Yeung at email@example.com.
Henry Yeung is our webmaster and, as such, controls all technical aspects of the voting process. This is the sixth year we’ve had elections and Henry has been consistently adept and above reproach in assuring that the process runs smoothly, is fair, and voters’ choices are confidential.
While this election primarily will be conducted online, the WGPO will try to assist members who wish to vote by mail. By its nature, this is less private that online, but the committee is discreet. Mail-in ballots (with your name, contact information and the names of the candidates for whom you are voting) may be sent to Lynda Finn, 4101 Monona Drive #402, Monona, WI 53716, or to Marcia Wade, 3703 N Lakeside Dr, Muncie, IN 47304. They must be received by December 14, 2016. If you want to vote via email, send your ballot with the names of the candidates for whom you are voting to firstname.lastname@example.org. In order for your email vote to be counted, your name must match that shown on our records and the vote must be sent from the email address associated with your member account. Only one ballot per member is allowed. If a member submits more than one ballot, only the first ballot received from that member will be counted.
