    79 out of 4221

    If I am reading all of this correctly, 79 members have voted and we have 4221 listed on the members roll??? Is this a problem? Is there a problem? Or is it just me??

    I see 243 registered voters.

    Yes, more members voting is always a good idea, but many choose not to vote

    I'm very happy that we have 79 members who do concern themselves enough to vote.

    Cheers!

    The answer to that is about 50% of those eligible are registered to vote. Of those registered about 50% actually bother to vote. Sad. Won't say more lest we stray into the political arena.

    I think this is one of, if not the biggest, turnouts we've had.

    Thanks to all that are voting and those that have volunteered.

    iirc we're about on par with the past elections. somewhere in the 80 to 90 range is 'normal'.

    And that is why I posted this. Was wondering if my math was wrong. I am glad to see the brighter side of this and hope all that can, do vote.
