Got my vote in, let the bitching begin. Just kidding but I do believe voting is important in anything that has an impact on you and God knows BBQ & KCBS has a big impact on me, just ask my wife.

It's a sad statistic that only 17% of the KCBS membership voted last year. I've heard all kinds of excuses...

Even sadder is that 17% is considered a high percentage for groups like KCBS (that's from VoteNet, the company that's administering the election).

Saddest of all is that 17% is not unusual for governmental elections either.

Yeah, I can b**ch and do fairly regularly.

I didn't realize it was that low, Candy!!.. why the hell do competitors become members then, if they don't care to take 5 minutes to vote once a year?!!?

I wonder what percentage of the voters are the competitors vs judges? Judges make up the vast majority of KCBS membership right?

KCBS doesn't track that now. Heck, just last year, we started gathering statistics as to where voters came from (states, etc.). Now that administering the election is done by the office (instead of by a board member), we can get more information. Maybe next year, but my gut says more judges vote. By the way, KCBS has 100% member participation from China (1 member)!

I don't know, honestly. A cook doesn't have to be a member to cook, only to get points for team of the year.

What upsets me is the members that use the "I don't know any of the candidates" reason not to vote. I have and do vote for people based on how they answer the 6 questions, not whether I know them or not.

Wow!
Got 30.4% return rate on our election.
Didn't realize that was a good percentage!

Are those stats available? Did Steve post something on that last year?

How many more days, Candy? Not that you would be counting...

Steve may have. Don't know as there's anything secret about it.

Voting is done 1/17 at noon, I think.

Yes, I am a lame duck for sure!!! One more meeting to preside and 24 more board meetings to go...

Located the numbers. Login to KCBS.US and go to downloads. Data is on there on a map and a table. In Illinois, there were 842 members eligible to vote and 111 actual votes cast from there. That's 14%.

Tennessee and Louisiana had the highest voting percentage at 29% and 28% respectively.

I voted yesterday afternoon. I always study the questions and make my decision on the answers of all the candidates.
