2016 AMLE Election Results

The results are in for the 2016 AMLE Election. First, the constitutional amendment passed with an 87% yes vote. Changes to the AMLE Constitution require a 2/3 vote of the members voting. The amendment includes a reduction in the number of trustees from 18 to 12, and changes in the process by which trustees are elected.
