The tabulation of ballots for the IBT International officer election was completed on
November 18, 2016. At the completion of the tabulation of ballots returned by members determined initially to be eligible, the number of challenged ballots exceeded the winning margin for all offices except the Regional Vice-Presidents. Accordingly, the Office of the Election Supervisor examined the 12,280 challenged ballots for member eligibility and possible resolution.
Of the challenged ballots, OES determined that 5,991 were returned from members who were ineligible. OES was able to determine readily, from updated membership data, that 2,908 ballots were returned from members eligible to vote. Subtracting those from the total challenged ballot resulted in 3,381 challenged ballots remaining.
The 2,908 ballots were identified and counted, and the tabulation is reflected on the unofficial results page. The winning margin for all offices now exceeds the number of challenged ballots remaining.
The IBT International election will not be completed until the results are finally certified by the Election Supervisor. 2016 Election Rules, Article I.
