I hope that Jim's credibility as a candidate has been firmly established and that he can get on the ballot again next year as an "endorsed" candidate.

Jim, I was proud to vote for you. I don't like the end result, BUT you have made a historical change that will, I hope, give you and perhaps other unpicked actuaries by our illustrious our "leaders in power", who are clearly qualified for office, will good a fair chance of winning on the merits.

Thank you, Jim.

Does the increased turnout ironically make it more difficult to get on the ballot next year?

That is a bit of a stupid process the SOA has if that is the case.

How did you reach that conclusion? SOA has not yet published voter counts.

I am sure once SOA publish voter counts, we all can do our own analysis.

No, Jim lied to us. The SOA always tells the truth.
