<p>Welcome to the first elections for the Wikimedia Board of Trustees. We are
voting for two people to represent the community of users on the various
Wikimedia projects: the <strong>Contributing Active User Representative</strong> and the
<strong>Volunteer User Representative</strong>. They will help to determine the future direction
that the Wikimedia projects will take, individually and as a group, and
represent <em>your</em> interests and concerns to the Board of Trustees. They will
decide on ways to generate income and the allocation of moneys raised.</p>

<p>Please read the candidates' statements and responses to queries carefully
before voting. Each of the candidates is a respected user, who has contributed
considerable time and effort to making these projects a welcoming environment
committed to the pursuit and free distribution of human knowledge.</p>

<p>You may vote for as many candidates in each category as you want. The
candidate with the most votes in each position will be declared the winner of that
position. In the event of a tie, a run-off election will be held.</p>
