> Greetings TUG members -
> The deadline has come, the ballots have been counted,
> and the results are in.
> Kaveh Bazargan has been elected president for the term that
> ends with the 2017 annual meeting.
> The folowing votes were counted:
> Kaveh Bazargan, 307
> Jim Hefferon, 110
> Both candidates made a good showing, although the total
> number of voters was only about a third of those eligible.
> As of the ballot closing date (May 11), 145 paper votes
> and 291 electronic valid ballots were received.
> Of the 291 electronic votes, 9 were repeats of the same vote.
> One member voted (differently) by paper after voting
> electronically, so the electronic vote was excluded
> from the result.
> The electronic votes were processed by a shell script.
> Handling the paper votes and matching these up
> with electronic votes was time-consuming and expensive.
> We suggest that the electronic voting may be strongly
> encouraged in the future, while paper ballots could be
> sent by request. We will make specific recommendations
> to the election procedures in due course.
> This is the first contested election since 2005.
> Thanks to everyone for their participation.
