ALA Election: Last Year's Turnout Exceeded Ahead of Schedule

The turnout for the ALA election has now surpassed 2003's turnout! Here's a PDF
I cranked from Excel, which I used to quickly run the numbers; it has ALA election turnout data from March 23.

The ALA election turnout rate is also a little higher than I predicted, with most of the pick-up in the e-ballots. If you have been waiting to vote, get going--you can no longer count on the "small pool" theory to elect your candidates. (Democracy: catch the fever!) Polls close Sunday, April 25, 11:59 p.m. CDT.

4/15 Turnout, and Increase From 4/8/04

E-ballots 8589, +1523 (17.7%)

Paper Ballots 1568, +325 (20.7%)

Total Ballots 10,157, +1848 (18.2%)

Total Ballots 2003: 9,844
