I always find it disappointing that so few members vote, I don't know how this compares with other membership organisations of a similar size. We have no way of knowing why more members didn't vote, it could range from complete satisfaction with the way things are being run, to despair that their vote wouldn't make any difference, with I suspect a fair bit of disinterest along in between.
What we do know is that 100% of the membership had the opportunity to vote, unlike in times past, and there can't be much criticism that it wasn't made simple enough to do so.

People too often don't vote then complain that the organisation doesn't listen.
