Election Statistics for 2018

Now that the 2018 election is over, we’re happy to share with you our voter turnout statistics!

For the 2018 Election, we had 5649 total eligible voters. Of those, 827 voters cast a ballot, which represents 14.6% of the potential voters. This is an increase from 12.7% of voters in 2017.

For those who might be interested in the number of votes each candidate received, please note that our election process is designed to elect an equal cohort of Board members in order to allow them to work well together, so we do not release that information. As a general rule, we also won’t disclose which of our unsuccessful candidates received the fewest votes, since we don’t want to discourage them from running again in the future when circumstances and member interest might be different.

Once again, a big thank you to everyone who participated at every stage of the election! We hope to see you at the virtual polls again next year.
