The 2015 elections are now over. Over 50% of the possible votes were
garnered and with 536 members voted we had 39.59% our membership
voting. This election was interesting for a number of close races;
some resolved in the last few weeks but the Secretary and NOD races
were quite close, as you'll see, and there was a lot of position
shifts during the course of election.

The results, pending the passage of background checks for any new MG
members needing them:

Rev. Crystal Groves ......... 988 votes 38.44% WINNER

Congratulations to all the winners, and my gratitude to all who ran
for supporting ADF. The fully results page with all statistics will be
mildly delayed since some abstentions were written-in as well, so I
can't simply use the automatically generated one.



*After repeated complaints in years past, this year the Bylaws were
changed before the election so that members each had double their
votes since there were two seats for NOD candidates, with a maximum of
their base votes for any one candidate. Despite bolded sections on the
ballot, I suspect this was missed by many; it will be emphasized more
in future years. Complicating things is that many members do not use
all their votes on each race in cases of partial/full abstention.

**Valerie withdrew during voting; however most voters had already
voted, and paper ballots also existed.

Blessings,
Arthur Shipkowski
ADF 2015 Elections Officer
