Hi Christian,

There were 491 eligible voters out of which 267 have cast their
vote.
thank you! Then we had an electoral participation of 54%. Mmmh, not
much  but expected I suppose.
If the blank vote were included, the participation would have been bigge
r.


I doubt it. If one was reading the thread concerning the misdirected
need to vote on a name change then, and provided the person was
interested enough, they would have voted -- presumably in the negative.

At the last elections for the Board there were 237 votes cast and there
were 400 eligible voters. 59% "voter turnout" for elections, and 54.4%
"turnout" for the present ballot.

And this is rather interesting in itself: the number of 'members'
increased by 91 persons (23%) and yet the voting percentage dropped by 5%.

On the other hand we haven't gone through and cleaned up the membership
list to remove "inactive" members for a couple of years now so you'd
expect some decline on that side, from talking to the membership
officials it would also be reasonable to presume that many of the new
20% care about issues related to name / foundation and this is why they
decided to become members.

At the same time some existing members may not feel strongly enough to
vote or may trust the rest of the community to make what will be the
right decision in the end.
