ARRL to Look Again at Online Board Elections

The ARRL's board of directors will be taking a second look at the use of electronic balloting in elections for directors and vice directors after a previous attempt nearly a decade ago produced disappointing results. According to the ARRL Letter, the board in 2012 introduced a hybrid system of paper and electronic balloting, but overall participation in League elections dropped off significantly so the board decided in 2015 to return to paper ballots only. 

With online voting now becoming commonplace in professional organizations, the League has decided to revisit the issue, with the board asking the Administration and Finance Committee to investigate and report back by next January.
