Online voting note

We’ve been advised that site maintenance for the Votenet eballot process will be conducted Sunday, October 16, 2011 from 1am to 8 AM Eastern Standard Time. A service interruption message will be displayed to inform visitors of this and request them to check back later.

They may complete the process sooner, but wanted you to know in case you’re an early bird or a really late night bird. In any case, voters should attempt voting after 8 AM Eastern Standard Time on Sunday, October 16, 2011.

    why did you advertise that voting closed at midnight on October 20 then cut off the voting at midnight October 19…so many potential voters that were awaiting laptops to arrive at the World show are now shut out of the voting process.

    We understand that some folks were confused, but the instructions were correct that voting closed at midnight (12:00 a.m.) Oct 20th.

    Why are you not allowing comments on the “results”?-This is clearly an error,the vote results must be overturned and voting done again.

    Regardless of who is right and wrong with when Midnight on the 20th actually occurs is irrelevant, the ApHC office should have made it CLEAR to the membership. Even the staff was not clear and sent a newsletter late in the afternoon on the 19th stating “NOTICE: 2011 Board of Directors Election Ends at Midnight Tomorrow!”

    It would appear that it closed at midnight on the 19th (24:00 hrs 10/19/2011, not 24:00 hours on 10/20/2011). The date change happens AFTER midnight (12:00:01 to be precise, on a 24 hour clock that would be 00:00:01). Irregardless, common usage suggests that midnight on October 20th would have been 24 hours later than the poll was closed.

    In addition to the time ,is the fact that some ballots went out on the last day,some to lifemembers-this confusion has denied the right to vote for those members.
