There are five (5) committee, and two (2) additional deputy seats to be filled during this election. Therefore a total of seven (7) slots are available, and will be selected by a single transferable vote system, seats filled in decreasing order of preference. Should more than two of the top seven vote-getters be affiliated with the same company, only the two with the most votes will be considered elected. This election is according to our statutes (non-binding English translationhttp://www.documentfoundation.org/statutes.pdf), and the term of office is two years.
All discussion related to the elections should be held on email@example.com members are invited to ask questions to one or all candidates. Instructions explaining how to vote will be sent via e-mail to all eligible voters in time before the election.
As previously announced, the actual election period will START at 2014-09-04, 00:00 CET/UTC+2 and END at 2014-09-11, 24:00 CET/UTC+2.
All eligible voters will receive an individual voting token via e-mail sent to the address we have registered in the membership database, with a subject of “Your Document Foundation 2014 Membership Committee Voting Token”. Please do not share this token with anyone as only you are entitled to use it. In case you have not received your token within 24 hours after the start of the election as outlined above, and after having checked your spam folder, please write firstname.lastname@example.org AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
We are looking forward to the elections, and would like to thank you for your work, engagement and dedication for The Document Foundation!
