Election period for the second Fellowship seat in the GA in February
During the whole of February 2010, FSFE's Fellows will be able to elect their second representative in FSFE's General Assembly. The winner of the election will help FSFE's strategic decision making body plan the future of the organisation, and will join Torsten Grote who occupies the first Fellowship seat since earlier last year. Both Fellowship representatives are full members of the General Assembly for a term of two years, and have all the rights and obligations of other members.
- Who can vote? All registered Fellows can vote.
- Who can be elected? To become a candidate, you need to have been an active Fellow for at least a year before the election. This helps to make sure that the people elected into the GA are familiar with FSFE and its work.
- Election Platform All candidates will use the wiki and/or their blogs as a promotion platform, so that all Fellows can learn more about them.
- Voting System For the voting process we will use the Schulze method, a popular voting system used by Debian, Wikimedia and others. It is a well tested method and has proven to be resistant to voting anomalies.
All candidates who registered by the January 25th deadline are listed on the 2010 election website. Fellows will receive an e-mail to their [login]@fsfe.org e-mail alias. There the voting URL and all other necessary information is included. If you have questions, please contact the Fellowship team.
