Third Quarter Report of the Election Committee 2006


TO: National Coordinator and Advisory Board, USGenWeb
FROM: USGenWeb Elections Committee
SUBJECT: EC REPORT THIRD QUARTER 2006
DATE: October 5, 2006
 

JULY 2006

Voting was delayed six days due to a technical problem out of the control of
the EC.
Passwords were mailed on July 6, for voting beginning 7 July. Voting was
scheduled to continue through August 4th.

There were 80 bounces from the 1948 password mailings. Many where what the
EC terms "chronic" bounces, i.e. members who had bounced previously on two
or more occasions. Two members reported receiving two passwords, and one
member received several duplicate password notes. The errors were quickly
corrected.

Due to a coding problem, voters in the NENC region experienced problems when
voting for the two CC rep seats. The code was corrected on Monday after the
election started. The votes cast before the error was corrected were not
recorded, for those who received the error message. Those members were
instructed to return to the ballot and vote again. No double votes were
included in the totals.

July 11 - The membership list containing 2207 names was prepared for the
July Newsletter. There were 91 bounces, the vast majority considered
"chronic" bounces, wherein the same members have repeatedly bounced.
 

AUGUST 2006

Aug 4 - Voting ended. Notice was placed on the EC website that results
would be released between August 7-12. The results came in and were
