CPSR Elections: June 2006

We need your email!

During June of 2006, CPSR will hold elections to fill between four and six at-large seats on its Board of Directors. These will all be for three-year terms.  This year, we are testing an evoting election and will document for our members its successes and pitfalls.  CPSR does not endorse the use of electronic voting without a paper audit trail for government elections, including municipal, state, and national elections. As a nonprofit organization with a small budget, however, we believe online voting is a cost-effective way to encourage the greatest number of our members to vote. Our choice reflects our belief that electronic voting without a paper trail should only be used in an extremely limited context. This limited context does not include political or government elections.

In order for us to email you information about participating in the election, we need an accurate and working email address.  If you have not been receiving the "CPSR Compiler" regularly, please email cpsr at cpsr dot org with a current email account.

This election is an important turning point for CPSR, with more than the usual number and officer positions expiring. Eight of the twelve sitting directors have terms expiring on June 30, 2006. Three of these are the President, the Secretary, and the Treasurer. The 2006-07 board will have the opportunity to chart a new course on various points. Please consider running, and please definitely do vote.

Send Nominations for CPSR Board by May 31: Nominations should be sent to, with the subject "2006 Nomination", by 2300 UTC (4 p.m. Pacific Standard daylight time) on May 31, 2006.  To run for election, or vote, in CPSR's 2006 Board Elections you must be a member in good standing on May 31st, 2006.

Why did you join CPSR?

I want to be part of the solution. I think CPSR is working to guide society in the proper creation and use of technology.
