To all X.Org Foundation Members:
The X.Org Foundation's annual election is now open and will remain open until 02:00 UTC on 11 April 2019.
Four of the eight director seats are open during this election, with the four nominees receiving the highest vote totals serving as directors for two year terms.
There were six candidates nominated. For a complete list of the candidates and their personal statements, please visit the 2019 X.Org Elections page at https://www.x.org/wiki/BoardOfDirectors/Elections/2019/
In addition to the board election, we are also voting on whether or not to approve of the new By-laws.
Here are some instructions on how to cast your vote:
Login to the membership system at: https://members.x.org/
If you do not remember your password, you can click on the "lost password" button and enter your user name. An e-mail will be sent to you with your password. If you have problems with the membership system, please e-mail membership at x.org.
When you login you will see an "Active Ballots" section with the "X.Org 2019 Elections v2" ballot. When you click on that you will be presented with a page describing the ballot. At the bottom you will find a number of dropdowns that let you rank your candidates by order of preference, as well as a question on whether to accept the proposed By-laws changes.
For the election: There is a pull-down selection box for 1st choice, 2nd, choice, and so on. Pick your candidates top to bottom in order of preference, avoiding duplicates.
For the By-laws: If you approve of the new By-laws, select "yes" from the dropdown. If you do not approve of the new By-laws, select "no" from the dropdown. If you wish to abstain from this question, select "Abstain".
There is a link to the new By-laws in the ballot description, as well as a link to the patch introducing the change.
Note that answering this question is required for your vote to be validated.
After you have completed your ballot, click the "Cast vote" button. Note that once you click this button, your votes will be cast and you will not be able to make further changes, so please make sure you are satisfied with your votes before clicking the "Cast vote" button.
After you click the "Vote" button, the system will verify that you have completed a valid ballot. If your ballot is invalid (e.g., you duplicated a selection or did not answer the By-laws approval question), it will return you to the previous voting page. If your ballot is valid, your votes will be recorded and the system will show you a notice that your votes were cast.
Note that the election will close at 02:00 UTC on 11 April 2019. At that time, the election committee will count the votes and present the results to the current board for validation. After the current board validates the results, the election committee will present the results to the Members.
Harry, on behalf of the X.Org elections committee
