Proxy Votes

If you are a member of the OpenStreetMap Foundation, but will be unable to attend the AGM you may still vote by proxy. To do this you should send a message to the following email addresses containing details of your votes:

To:    (User:Imi, OSMF secretary)
cc:  (User:bobkare, Independent scrutineer)
cc: (User:randomjunk, Independent scrutineer)
Subject: OSMF Vote 2007    

You have five votes. Your email should simply list the names of up-to five candidates you wish to vote for. Any other content of your email will be ignored. Any conditions or qualifiers attached to your vote will be ignored. Listing more than five candidates will be considered a spoiled vote. Emails not copied to both independent scrutineers may also be considered as spoiled votes.

Voting by email is open immediately, although new candidates may still be proposed until Tuesday August 7th. Voting by email closes at midnight BST (GMT+1) on Friday August 10th. Votes after that time should be made in person at the AGM.
