Proxy Votes (Vote via email)


The proxy voting was organised as follows:

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

To:    (Michael Collinson, OSMF secretary)
cc: (User:randomjunk, Independent scrutineer)
cc:  (User:sward, Independent scrutineer)
Subject: OSMF Board Vote 2010  

You have three votes. Your email should simply list the names of up to three 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 three 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 from Thursday 1st July, although new candidates may still be proposed until the end of that day. Voting by email closes at midnight BST (GMT+1) on Friday July 9th. Votes after that time should be made in person at the AGM.
