Affiliate-selected Board seats/2014

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

The 2014 affiliate-selected Board seats process took place from 1 March 2014 through 31 May. See the timeline below for more information.


  • Nominations opened on 1 March (see call for candidates). No new nominations will be accepted after 31 March. The ballot will be finalized on 15 April, so all endorsements must be submitted by then.
  • Questions can be asked at any point. A general pool of questions is available here; to ask individual candidates questions, post on the talk page of their nomination.
  • Voting opened on 15 April and closed on 31 May. The long voting period is to allow people to ask questions and to discuss the candidates, especially during the Wikimedia Conference in Berlin.
  • Results have been announced on 3 June; Patricio Lorente and Frieda Brioschi have been selected.

All dates and times are in UTC.

Election facilitators[edit]

The election facilitators for 2014 are James Hare, Chris Keating, and Laurentius. They are responsible for overseeing the process and are happy to answer any questions.


The process is governed by the resolution adopted by the Wikimedia chapters and thematic organizations.
