Nearly half of eligible voters (47.6%) voted in the online process. Eighty (80) paper ballots were cast. For those who would like to vote online in the future, please send your current email address to info@DignityUSA.org.
For the first time, we offered an online Candidates Forum, so members could hear directly from those running for the Board, and even submit questions to them. The session was viewed by over 150 people.
Thanks to all of our extraordinary candidates, to all who participated in the elections process, and to Chris Cappiello for a terrific job as Elections Committee Chair.
