The OTW is a fannish organization. Why aren’t the fannish identities of candidates publicly disclosed?

While many people are okay with their fannish identities being connected to their legal identities, that is not is not the case for everyone, for various reasons. OTW’s policy puts that decision in the hands of the candidates; it is up to them to decide how much they are comfortable sharing about their fannish identities. This applies both during and after the election process, for candidates who are elected as well as for those who are not.
