LOS ANGELES – Office of the Director of Officiating (and Records): The University of Kentucky Dodgeball Club will play host for Nationals 2017 in Lexington, Kentucky. They have two potential weekends available, of April 1st or April 8th.
This was a preferential election. Each Member Team submitted a ballot ranking the candidates by preference. The votes were transferred in a STV format until the most preferred candidate won a majority. 12 votes dictated a quorum for our current total of 23 teams. Tyrell Smith, Director of Nationals 2016, was auditor of the ballots as per the election oversight duties of the position.
An election note, there was a tiebreaker between VCU and JMU in the first round since they had the same total of first preferences in the election. The tiebreaker went to the Candidate with more second preferences: VCU with 11 over JMU with 3.
Please view the original ballot.in and election.out file for the preferential counts.

Staying in one of the two main regions… What a shock
For the record, we voted East Coast fam. =/
It’s no skin off my back really, but I was hoping to be able to visit and maybe play in the alumni game. Not sure I’ll be able to afford Baltimore to Lexington though.
Thanks Wes. At least some people want positive change in the league instead of the status quo.
Business as usual.
