2. in the voting process that prevented members from exercising their right. The committee decided to survey ONS members who did not vote in the 2006 election, with the survey being sent via ONS's election vendor to ensure confidentiality.
A total of 26,471 nonvoting members received the survey via e-mail; of those, 1,753 responded (6.6%). The primary response that members indicated for not voting was "Did not know the candidates" (see inset). To overcome this, the Nominating Committee solicited the help of chapters because 50% of the responders reported that they voted in their chapter elections. When we met with chapter leaders at the ONS Mentorship/Leadership Weekend in July, we reviewed the survey results and solicited their input. Based on that feedback, the following measures have been instituted so you can better know the candidates.
* Each candidate will have the opportunity to answer three specific questions during a timed, audio-recorded interview. The audio-recording will be posted as a podcast on the ONS Web site. Visitors to the Web site will be able to listen to the podcast on their computers or download the audio to a portable MP3 player A digital music player that supports the MP3 format, which was the audio format that started a revolution in online music downloads and distribution. All portable music players, the iPod being the most popular, support MP3 along with one or more other audio formats. .
* Letters from candidates will be posted on the Chapters Virtual Community, with hard copies also being sent to chapter leaders for them to read or share at chapter meetings.
* Chapter leaders will be asked to reserve one chapter meeting to focus on voting, review candidates, offer the opportunity to vote at the meeting via laptop (if possible), and generate enthusiasm over the process.
In addition, 70% of the responding members indicated that they did not know the qualifications of the positions for which they were voting. The position descriptions are available in the Election area of the ONS Web site (www.ons.org/mem bership/election), or members can request a copy of the Candidate Guide to review. Either can be reviewed at your convenience prior to casting your vote.
