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.
