The INN membership elects six seats to the organization’s board of directors, with one to three seats up for election in any one year. Regular, publishing members in good standing are eligible to vote, one vote per organization.  

In 2022, two seats were up for election. Eight candidates were on the ballot, and 102 ballots were cast. Of those, six were duplicates where the same voter’s ballot was recorded twice or where two people from the same organization submitted ballots, and the duplicate ballot was dropped. INN also discounted two ballots from organizations whose membership has lapsed and one from an affiliate member. INN board voting is limited to regular members that are news publishers.  Some members chose to vote for only one candidate. 

A full list of the board can be found under Board of Directors.
