So why announce ridiculously unrealistic timeframe between the vote
concluding and the results being announced?
First, I disagree that it's "ridiculously unrealistic". Vote
already started and will continue throughout the polling. Second, hindsight
is 20/20. I'll tell you that it's a balancing act... we've gotten it right
a few times and we've gotten it wrong a few times. It's been years since
this type of all-projects election was held for anything but a Board of
Trustees election, and so, yeah, mistakes will be made. But let's just wait
and see on the timeframe, shall we? No doubt an extension will have to
happen, but.... what's the harm? If we take a couple extra days to announce
the results, who has been harmed?
