Let’s vote some more!


Now that you’ve voted for the next President of the United States, it’s time to vote again, this time for Bike Fed board members.

Each fall we fill four seats by election on the 21-member Bike Fed Board of Directors. After the election three more seats are filled through appointment by the board. All terms are for three years.

If you’re a Bike Fed member in good standing you get to vote. And even if you’re not a member you can still join now and vote immediately. Voting starts today (November 8th) and will close at 5PM on November 22nd.

Each member gets to cast four votes for unique candidates among the 18 nominees (you can only cast one of your four votes for a single candidate). As always the candidates are outstanding. Each candidate was asked to briefly answer a handful of questions. You can review those answers and then cast your ballot.

The Bike Fed is unusual in selecting the majority of its board by the votes of its members. The vast majority of nonprofits select their boards through the board members themselves without much input from the rank and file membership. But from the beginning the Bike Fed has been a democratic organization. We like that because it means that we take direction from cyclists themselves, responding to trends and to needs that they see in the communities they come from.

So vote early and vote often… well, at least cast your four votes for the four seats up for election. Help shape the organization that moves cycling forward in Wisconsin.
