Election Committee Summary

The Election Committee certifies that the election was fairly executed and there is no reason to doubt the results. There are 1927 entries into the voter log. Of these, there are 13 struck votes (all of which were test votes); 105 "greyed-out" or cancelled votes resulting from users submitting a subsequent ballot; and 1809 valid votes. Additional, more detailed statistical analysis will be available in the coming days and weeks.

All levels of the community, including the Board, the candidates, the voters, WMF staff and the Election Committee, are encouraged to participate in the post mortem discussion of the election process.

For the first time, the election included seats for the Funds Dissemination Committee and for the FDC Ombudsperson. This has added several layers of complexity to the election process, for candidates, voters, Engineering staff and the Election Committee. Several issues relating to the use of the SecurePoll extension were identified, although none related to the security of votes or reliability of results. The start of the voting period was delayed by one week as the Committee could not verify that voter lists and voting software were ready and functional on the scheduled starting date.

The Election Committee extends its thanks to Sam Reed, Philippe Beaudette, and James Alexander for their invaluable contributions and assistance.

For the Election Committee,
