Affiliate-selected Board seats/2014/Results

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

The votes for the 2014 Affiliate-selected Board seats election have been casted from 15 April to 31 May 2014.

The candidates who won the election are Patricio Lorente and Frieda Brioschi, and therefore the movement affiliates recommend the Board appoints them.

There were 27 votes cast by movement affiliates, and the results at each stage of the count (under the STV system with Droop quota) were as follows.

  • Step 1
    • votes: Patricio Lorente (15.50); Alice Wiegand (5.50); Frieda Brioschi(5.00); Anders Wennersten (1.00).
    • Patricio is selected.
  • Step 2
    • votes: Frieda (8.73); Alice (6.74); Anders (1.53)
    • Anders is not selected.
  • Step 3
    • votes: Frieda (9.26); Alice (7.74)
    • Alice is not selected.
  • Step 4:
    • votes: Frieda (17.00)
    • Frieda is selected.

The 0.5 votes in the first round occur because some affiliates put two candidates as 1st preference: this was treated as a half-vote for each candidate.

The election result was counted independently by two of the facilitators, one using a script and the other using pen-and-paper, to verify one anothers' results.
