This is a reminder to everyone that you should vote for the 2011
council election before:
July 3rd 23:59:59 UTC*
Which means you have today (2nd July, Saturday) and tomorrow (3rd
July, Sunday) to vote. A total of 48hrs. Don't wait for Monday because
the voting period will be over by then!
The current turnout is just 31%, which is lower than last year, so
please go and vote! People are highly recommended to nag eligible
voters to vote. :-)
Voting instructions can be found in the motd of your home directory on
dev.gentoo.org. See `votify --help` for more details. The current
election is "council-201106". "_reopen_nominations" is being used in
the current election, which can be treated like any other candidate.
Looking forward to seeing a good turnout!
On behalf of the election officials,
*: voting actually ends on July 4th 00:00:01 UTC, aka 20110704000000UTC.
