Many members who voted commented on the need to have more than one candidate running for positions.

"We are and will be working diligently with all the Committees on Nominations to have more than one candidate for positions in the future," said Jerry Baker, Sigma Xi's executive director. "We want diversity on our committees and boards."

Approximately 14 percent of Sigma Xi members participated in our third election held online. Many voters commented that the system was easy to use.
