Nominations

Nominations are now closed. The information below is retained for reference purposes.

  • Nominations are now open
  • Nomination period will close Oct 2, 2014 at 23:59:59 Eastern (24 hours before the election commences)
  • A wiki page has been provided for recording nominations
  • Nominees must provide position statements at the time of nomination via links on this wiki page, or a statement embedded in the table above
  • A Nominee who withdraws should not remove their name from the wiki page, but rather clearly note that they decline by editing the page
  • A current officer of OSM US will verify that nominees are members before the election starts. A nominee may join OSM US at any time before the end of the nomination period to become eligible (note that the nominee must be fully paid up at the time that nominations close.)
  • A valid nomination will include:
    • a name posted in the wiki
    • a position statement or link to a position statement in the wiki
    • All of the above by 23:59:59 ET October 2nd, 2014 (based on the wiki timestamp of the last edit)
    • Independent verification of current membership (this can happen at any time before the start of the election and is not the responsibility of the Nominee)

Elections

  • Only paid members of OSM US can vote
  • The voting period runs for one week, closing October 14, 2014 at 23:59:59 ET.
  • Members who renew their paid membership before the end of elections can still vote
  • Voting members will receive links via email to the voting website (the voting website is currently implemented via Survey Monkey)
  • Paid OSM US members will receive, via email, a unique link to a voting page. This will be sent to the email address associated with their entry in OSM US membership records.
  • Voters may vote for up to 5 nominees to the board.
  • Ballots for more than 5 nominees will be disqualified and discarded.
  • One independent monitor will come from the greater OSM community. the monitor shall not be a current board member or candidate for the OSM US board. They will have access to Survey Monkey in order to verify that the vote has been correctly counted and reported.
  • Tiebreaker: should there be a tie for the final board seats, those members clearly elected to the new board will decide how to break the tie. The board members selected by this group must be from the nominees who are tied.
