2010 Board Voting Now Open!
Thanks to our heroic OTW Systems team, voting is now open in the 2010 OTW Board elections!
Voting will remain active for a full 48 hours, so you have until 16:20 19 November to cast your ballot. (What time is that where I am?)
The ballot can be found here, and you can read about our candidates here.
You can read more about the elections process on the OTW Elections Website.
OTW Voters – check your email!
We’re a week away from the OTW’s first contested election for seats on our Board of Directors, and all eligible voting members of the Organization for Transformative Works have now been sent voting account information!
If you made a qualifying donation and became a member between 1 October 2009 and the end of our most recent donations drive on 25 October 2010, then you should have an email which includes a unique randomly assigned username, password instructions, ballot instructions, and a link to the 2010 ballot on the OTW Election website. If you have not received this email and believe you are a qualified voting member, please contact us! We will also be posting and sending a separate reminder email on the day of the election, prior to the opening of the polls.
At noon UTC on 17 November 2010 polls will open, and that ballot will become active. (What time is that here?) Voting will continue for 48 hours, and the polls will close automatically at noon UTC on 19 November 2010. (What time is that here?)
You won’t be able to change your vote once you have cast your ballot, so we urge you to think about your choices. We have four eminently qualified candidates standing for three seats on the board — three challengers and a single incumbent. Our candidates are Hele Braunstein, Francesca Coppa, Ira Gladkova, and Kristen Murphy, and you can read more about them and about the OTW’s voting process here, on our elections website.
Second 2010 Candidate Chat Transcript Now Available
The second of our two OTW elections chats was held at 2100 UTC 24 October, 2010. We’ve posted a transcript and screenshot for any OTW members or supporters who missed the event and would like to catch up.
You can read the transcript or view the screenshot here, on the OTW Elections website.
