What You Need to Know About the Presidential Runoff Election
Dean Angelo is now the front runner, as he received the most votes of the five presidential candidates. However, no single presidential candidate received more than 50% plus one of the vote. Therefore, there will be a runoff election between Dean Angelo and Bill Dougherty, which means ballots will be mailed out to every member's house again.
Ballots will be mailed out on March 17, and they will be counted on April 2. The new officers installation will take place on April 6. We'll be sending out more updates as we receive them.
Thank you all for your continued support throughout this process.
