Voting Numbers Down in Board of Trustees Election

The hotly contested Board of Trustees election saw fewer alumni voting during the first week than in the previous two years, according to the most recent numbers released by the Board office.

The election opened April 10 and will close on May 8. The Board of Trustees is reporting only 14,170 votes through 5 p.m. on April 16, a 35 percent decrease from the record-setting 21,930 voters during the first week in 2012. The number is also down significantly from the first week in 2013, when 19,700 votes were cast.

Thirty-one candidates are vying for three empty seats this year. AccuWeather president Joel Myers is the only incumbent hoping to retain his seat.

Voting ends at 9 a.m. on May 8, with the results to be announced at the trustee meeting the following afternoon. In order to request a ballot, Penn State graduates can click HERE.
