The OTW Elections committee is pleased to announce that the timeline for the 2017 election has been posted!
There are some changes to the timeline this year. In order to avoid conflicts with other OTW events, the election has been moved to earlier in the year. This change started last year, with the election taking place in late September, and this year it’s moving to August, where it should stay for the foreseeable future.
Specifically, this year’s election will be held August 11-14.
This means that the deadline to become a member and be eligible to vote has also moved up. Like the election time, this date will be the same every year. The election membership deadline is now June 30. If you’re interested in voting, please make sure your membership is active as of that date.
You can find out how to become a member on the Elections website, or if you’re familiar with the process, you can donate here!
If you want to know more about the election process in general, you can check out the Elections Policies.
We’re looking forward to an active election season with ample communication between candidates and voters, and we hope you’ll be a part of it. Don’t forget to follow the Elections committee on Twitter and Tumblr to keep up to date with the latest news!
