DLANC Election Results Are In

DLANC Election Yesterday DLANC held its 2006 election at Macy's Plaza. Hopefully you saw the candidate information and got out to vote.

The preliminary results were released today and I'm pleased to say that I won with one vote, just as I had hoped1.

Overall 471 ballots were cast. That number is held down by how many races were uncontested, but it's also a sign of how much DLANC needs to focus on outreach in these next two years.

The full results after the jump...

My One Vote

Because I was running unopposed and DLANC's voting structure is set up so you can only vote in one stakeholder category, I told people not to vote for me in the time leading up to the election. Anyone eligible to vote for me as "Area Wide Resident Artist" must also be a stakeholder able to vote in the regular residential races. I'd much rather see them cast a vote in a contested race there than throw away a vote on me. I voted for myself; that's all I needed.
