2003-2004 TWHBEA Board of Directors’ Election Results Are In



The results are in for the 2003-2004 Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA) Board of Directors’ election. Once again, the certified public accounting firm of Winnett Associates, Shelbyville, Tenn., tallied the returns.

According to the official tabulations, 3,684 of the 12,559 ballots mailed were returned. The percentage of returns, 29.33 percent, was up from last year’s 27.61 percent. Mississippi had the highest percentage of returned ballots at 49.35 percent. The lowest voting percentage, 3.33 percent, was in British Columbia.

Ties in the voting occurred among write-in candidates in Nevada, New York and Region 2, none of which had declared candidates. The tie in New York has been resolved. A run-off election will be held in Nevada and Region 2 among the tied candidates.
