Interestingly, the three LAB-Reform candidates obtained almost as many signatures (411) as LAB collected votes (560) for its highly restricted “election”. Congratulations to Diane Albert (current President, Bicycle Coalition of New Mexico), at any rate. She signed our petition and endorsed the petition drive on the BCNM web site.

Board Election Results
The polls closed a few days ago; the preferential voting calculations have been made; candidates have been notified…and the results are in. Diane Albert, Alison Hill Graves and Steve Durrant join incumbents Harry Brull and Hans van NaerssenÂ on the Leagueâ€™s board. Thanks to all seven of the candidates who ran for the open positions. We will officially announce the results in Mondayâ€™s American Bicyclist e-newsletter update, and weâ€™ll post the voting numbers and explanation of the voting system on the website. A total of 560 members cast their votes – a small percentage, for sure, but a 30 percent increase over prior elections.
