The Importance of Member Participation
When member-based organizations talk election efforts, it is inevitable that the conversation will turn to the issue of response rates. The reason? A high response rate means that a greater number of voting members affirmed the outcome of the election. It also enhances the perceived legitimacy of the vote and is often times an indicator of an organization’s “health.”
