Dear Gentoo Foundation Member, Voting for the election has started at 00:00 UTC 2016/07/21 and will be open until 00:00 UTC 2016/08/18. As there are 4 candidates for 2 open seats, we need to have a voting. As already mentioned by David, only Foundation members may vote and the current list of members is at If you are not listed, please contact David ASAP. Here are the rules: * Gentoo Board of Trustees is composed of five elected members * Elections happen every year and need to be completed before the AGM in August * There should be at least three election officials plus at least one person assigned from Gentoo Infrastructure project to handle their side of the election. Officials are allowed to vote in the election but they aren't allowed to run in it. They are selected by the current Board of Trustees. * There's one month for nominations and one month for voting. In special cases current Board of Trustees may decide to shorten that period. Anyone can nominate. * All Gentoo Foundation members may vote but only members of age above 18 are allowed to run (legal requirement). To run in the election, a person has to be nominated on the gentoo-nfp mailing list and personally accept that nomination on the same list. * Members who are active Gentoo developers vote using votify script on * Members who aren't active Gentoo developers should mail their GPG-signed ballot files to election officials who will verify authenticity of those and pass them to infra so they are taken into account while counting votes. Special care should be taken to ensure the ballot is signed by the gpg key in the Foundation records. * After voting period is over, all election officials verify results provided by Infrastructure project member assigned to the election and then post them to the gentoo-nfp mailing list. The web page for this election [1] is already up and is linked from the trustees archives[2].
