2018 AAUW National Election Results

We had a great turnout for the 2018 National Bylaws Amendment Vote with over 19 percent of eligible members participating in the vote, more than three times the 5 percent required by our bylaws. Thank you for making your voice matter on these important issues.

The percent affirmative below have been updated as they were previously miscalculated in error. A choice of ‘abstain’ is not a vote, therefore the number of ‘abstain’ have been removed from the total from which the percentages were calculated. The correct percentages are now reflected. The vote totals have not been changed.
