Meeting:2012 AGM/Election results
The following is an account of the results for the Wikimedia Australia committee election in November 2012.
As only two candidates stood for each of the officer's positions, there was no need to redistribute votes. Accordingly, the following only includes first preference votes for each position.
John Vandenberg was elected.
Graham Pearce was elected.
Charles Gregory was elected.
Craig Franklin was elected.
Nine candidates stood for the two Ordinary Member positions:
- Michael Billington
- Gideon Digby
- Nick Dowling
- Craig Franklin
- Charles Gregory
- Graham Pearce
- Kerry Raymond
- Steven Zhang
- Gillian White
Three candidates, Craig Franklin, Charles Gregory and Graham Pearce, had also stood for Officer's positions, and were elected. Votes for these three candidates were removed and redistributed according to preferences. After redistribution, the distribution of votes was:
|Candidate||Round 1||Round 2||Round 3||Round 4||Round 5|
Kerry Raymond was removed for the second count, and votes were redistributed.
|Candidate||Round 1||Round 2||Round 3||Round 4|
Note that at the end of round 1, both Gideon Digby and Nick Dowling were tied on 3 votes. Nick Dowling was randomly eliminated. If Gideon Digby was randomly eliminated, the final result would remain unchanged.
Using the election software, the two winners were Kerry Raymond and Steven Zhang.
For confirmation, additional counts were run using OpenSTV and all viable counting methods: in all cases the final results were the same as with the election software.
Elected members were:
- President: John Vandenberg
- Vice President: Graham Pearce
- Secretary: Charles Gregory
- Treasurer: Craig Franklin
- Ordinary Members: Kerry Raymond and Steven Zhang
