Got a link?

I looked at USPA.org, and I failed to find anything about election results.

USPA has been notifying the winners and they have been posting on FB.

Link will be USPA.org's web page, soon, I hope.

I'm curious to find out how much increase, if any, there was in the percent of members voting since the addition of electronic voting.

Re: [skydived19006] Results [In reply to] Can't Post

So, what I see is that every incumbent who ran was reelected.

A couple of RDs ran for ND and didn't quite make the cut.

I voted for Jan and glad to see her back on.

Approximately double the number voted.

With the exception of Richard Winstock, name recognition rules the day.

Eric Florio ran a successful write in campaign with 44 votes.

Merriah Eakins ran unopposed with 269 votes for North Central RD. The fact that Marriah was able to get the 10% petition in order to get on the ballot says a lot for her!

Regardless, congratulations to all winners as well as those who didn't make the cut.

Thank you for your service!!

Martin

Looking at the results, it occurs to me to ask how many members are registered in each region.

It really does. I would love to see this rule get changed and eliminated since in most regions you will need to get a lot more signatures to get on the ballot then you need to win. It really puts the incumbents in position to stay on the BOD since it discourages a lot of people from getting on the ballot.

I'd like to see it changed as well, but that rule change would require a quorum of the membership, or a successful proxy campaign. There are a few changes that need to be made but the membership seems to be afraid to write what they consider to be a blank check in the form of giving their proxy. Or maybe the problem with the proxy is simply apathy, we get after all in the 10 to 20% range show up to vote in these elections.

I'm in the only region that had a contested RD slot (on the ballot, I believe there were write-ins elsewhere). Not sure that is good for the system.

Re: [skydived19006] Results [In reply to] Can't Post

Online voting also required a proxy of the members Wink We can even use the new online system to change that bylaw if so desired.

Maybe it's that bylaw changes such as where USPA in incorporated, and petition requirements for RDs to be on the ballot aren't nearly as fun and sexy as electronic voting?

Edit to add:
Does the bylaw change that allows electronic voting also allow proxies to be collected electronically???

I think it's more of a chicken and egg thing; once you get electronic voting in place, then voting on other bylaw changes (such as the petition issue) that require the full membership to vote becomes much more simple than using a proxy vote. Hopefully the proxy vote to get the electronic voting available will be the last proxy vote needed. At least I think that's how it would work - that we can now use electronic voting for more than just electing board members.
