June 1 - 19th: The committee received nominations for positions open
in the 2007 Elections and verified the nominees' eligibility.
June: During this month, a comparison was made of all records in
the online dataset and verified information from Election Committee
members. A number of duplicate entries were located and removed. These
duplications were due to re-registering by the member. To keep this
from occurring in the future, the wording on the Registration page
is being re-written.
