Bring out your votes!

So for those of you who HAVEN’T voted yet:

Voting ends today, June 7th, 2012, at 23:59:59 UTC. While you can check a handy-dandy time-zone calculator to see how far off that is, I suggest voting now.

Some other interesting tidbits related to voting:

  • If you just want to read about voting and skip my long-windedness, you can read the Elections wiki page for more information.
  • Voting is available for the Fedora Board, Fedora Engineering Steering Committee (FESCo), and Fedora Ambassadors Steering Committee (FAmSCo). You need to meet certain eligibility requirements to vote, and these vary from body to body.
  • There is a plethora of information available about the candidates, so that you may make an informed vote; I highly encourage you to read these bits of information, which are, again, detailed on the Elections wiki page. These include candidates’ nomination information, including name and brief bio; their answers to questionnaires, which were populated with questions proposed by members of the community; and finally, two IRC town halls were held for each elected group, in which community members could pose questions live for nominees to answer.  Logs for these town halls are available for your reading pleasure. (Log links are appended to the end of each table in the Town Hall Schedule, in case they’re hard to find.  Questionnaire answers have been appended to each candidates’ nomination statement.)

I’d like to sincerely thank everyone for their participation in these elections – whether it’s voting, participating in town halls, contributing to the administration and organization of these elections, or simply helping to remind others that voting is ON. These groups help to steer the direction of Fedora in a variety of ways; be sure to cast your vote to be represented!
