Elections
from Fancyclopedia 1 ca. 1944
Other than in local fan organizations, elections are held by mail. Ballots are ordinarily anonymous, so sent only to qualified voters. A ballot counter to whom to send the marked ballot is usually named thereon. Candidates are grouped by office, under each office in the order in which they filed their candidacies, with space left in each case for writing in anyone else's name whom the voter may wish to vote for. Amendments are usually included on the annual officers' ballot; special elections or votes don't get a very heavy turn out. Parties are sometimes formed in an effort to gain election by trading support but fans are pretty independent in voting for the person they want.
