Board Election

Foundation members will vote to elect a new board in December.

  • You do not need to attend the meeting to vote but you need to be a member or associate member throughout the period of 90 days prior to the date of the meeting. The deadline for becoming a new member eligible to vote for the board candidates of your choice is 12 September 2020 23:59:59 UTC
  • The OSM wiki will have a page with more information (link to be added).

Voting instructions and FAQ

To be linked.

IMPORTANT - Test your browser settings

The voting link (to be send on the 5th of December) will lead to a secure web page listing each candidate in random order and allowing you to rank the candidates in order of preference.

If you do not see the names of the candidates on the page linked from the voting email:

  • Please make sure that you have Javascript enabled. Disable any plugins that block content (like Decentraleyes or uBlock Origin). Otherwise the list of the candidates (or the "accept"/"reject" options) will not be visible and you will send an empty vote.
  • You will be able to test your browser settings by visiting a sandbox voting page to be linked from here, where you should see a list of OpenStreetMap editors (randomised each time you load the page). Use the same browser settings when you proceed to vote for the elections. The sandbox page will be only for testing purposes: the vote button does not work and votes on the OSM editors will not be not counted.
