I am pleased to announce that the winner of the 2011 DUFF race is Dave Cake.
This year we had a healthy number of votes - a total of 148 (with 39 from North America and the rest from Australasia).
For those who like the nitty gritty these are the first preferences:
Hold Over - 1
No Preference - 9
Write In - 1
Dave Cake - 80 (of which 69 are Australian votes and 11 are from North America)
Paula McGrath - 56 (of which 32 are Australian votes and 24 are from North America)
John Herz did a great job of advertising in North America and we got a reasonable lot of votes from North America for an off-year. I think nearly 150 votes is very good, indicating lots of supports for both worthy candidates.
Congratulations to both candidates for running such a good race.
