  • Voting closed. Thank you for your participation!
  • 4713 unique votes have been cast during ten days.
  • The result is expected to be announced on July 15, one week later.


4713 unique votes have been cast during ten days. Those votes may include votes from one user but multiple projects, voluntary strikes by users themselves or involuntary strikes by Election Committee members, and undetected frauds. The number of valid votes are estimated over 4000. Election Committee is currently reviewing the votes to detect possible fraud. After review, our third party partner Software in the Public Interest will tally and pass the result to the Election Committee in a week.

We appreciate all the people, who actively participate help troubleshoot and localize settings and spread information by all possible means.

  • [Vote striking] Election Committee appreciates reports from Wikimedia Community about questionable votes. Most of them were accidentally voted and some reports have come from voters themselves. One vote from a perpetually banned user from a Wikipedia was reported, and soon removed. This user was banned indefinitely due to votes from multiple accounts. We will appreciate your notice about further questionable votes.
