[REMINDER] Board of Directors elections - voting phase ending soon

Dear Members,

The election phase where is it possible to vote for the new Board of Directors is coming to an end.
Let me remind you of some information and deadlines as already shared in my previous message[0].

The subject of the message with the token for voting was:
"Your Document Foundation 2021 Board Elections Voting Token"
from the sender:

If you are a TDF member and you didn't get the message, please, check your inbox and the spam folder too! :wink:

In case you didn't find the message, please, reach out to us as soon as possible at

According to the announcement[1], this is the relevant timeline for voting:

* Friday, 2021-12-03, 00:00 CET/UTC+1: official start of the election

* Monday, 2021-12-13, 24:00 CET/UTC+1: end of the election

You have still time time to cast your vote but don't wait for the last minute!

I would also like to invite the candidates who didn't answer the questions from the Membership Committee to take the opportunity to answer.

For what concerns our voting system, the foundation adopted the STV voting system with the Meek method.
Please realise that it tries to optimise to make your first choice most likely to be on the board, with subsequent choices being much less probable (unless your earlier choices are very popular). As such the order of your choices really is important.

For more details please read also the page on Wikipedia[3].

You can find more information on this election directly from the election website[2] that includes also the list of candidates with their affiliations and candidacy statements[4].

On behalf of the Membership Committee,
Marina Latini
