    This is the criteria from our By-Laws used to determine the endorsements:
    Article IX. Endorsements: All endorsements must get 60% of votes of the eligible members present and voting on the office or issue in question provided that the membership was notified that endorsements would be entertained in its notice of the meetings, and at least 7 days in advance of the meeting.  Dual endorsements shall be permitted.   Additionally, all ballots shall contain spaces for eligible members to vote for ”No Endorsement” or to “Abstain” and such  votes shall be considered for the purposes of determining the required 60% threshold for endorsement.

    Again, thank you to everyone who participated and for your support.
