Election Statistics for 2019

Now that the 2019 election is over, we’re happy to share with you our voter turnout statistics!

For the 2019 Election, we had 9939 total eligible voters. Of those, 2234 voters cast a ballot, which represents 22.5% of the potential voters. We’re proud to say that our voter turnout is higher than that of last year, which had a turnout of 14.6%. We also saw an increase in the number of ballots cast, from 827 to 2234, which represents a 270% increase and gives us the highest turnout we’ve ever had!

Elections is committed to continuing to reach out to our eligible members to encourage them to vote in elections. Whoever is elected to the Board of Directors can have an important influence on the long-term health of the OTW’s projects, and we want our members to have a say in that. Read More

OTW Elections Notice

Edit: The election is running properly again. You can cast your ballot up until the deadline given in this post.

Due to a technical error, voting in the 2019 OTW Board Election has been temporarily suspended. We expect that the election will be re-opened for voters to submit their ballots about two hours from now. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. This post will be edited once voting has reopened.

To assist voters, we will extend the voting time an extra 2 hours, until 2am UTC on Tuesday, August 13. (What time is that for me?) Thank you for your patience!
