La junta electoral para las elecciones de la Fundación Wikimedia supervisa, en representación de la Fundación Wikimedia y de la comunidad Wikimedia, las elecciones a la Junta Directiva de la Fundación Wikimedia o al Comité de Distribución de Fondos por la comunidad.


Con anterioridad a 2016, cada elección de la comunidad para la Junta y FDC resultó en la creación de una junta electoral provisional. El 7 de noviembre de 2015, la Junta Directiva aprobó la formación de una junta electoral permanente. Los miembros fundadores de esa junta permanente fueron anunciados el 20 de julio de 2016.


Board of Trustees elections

The Committee has responsibilities throughout every phase of the selection process for Community- and Affiliate-Selected Trustees, as established in Article IV, Section 3(C) in the Foundation Bylaws, including:

  • Timeline – Work with staff to determine and communicate election timeline specifics, based on target end date set by the Board.
  • Candidacy – Working with staff and in consultation with the Board, design the process for collecting and reviewing candidate declarations.
  • Outreach – Work with staff to reach the various Wikimedia communities with information about the election, including * voting and the call for candidates.
  • Volunteers – Determine whether additional volunteers are needed to assist with election administration, and work with staff to recruit and coordinate those volunteers.
  • Communications – Review communications about the election drafted by staff and collaborate in determining when communications should be issued by the Committee, by staff, or by the Board.
  • Evaluation – Assist in reviewing candidates based on criteria set by the Board.
  • Campaigning – Set and enforce rules regarding how candidates can campaign, and oversee the process of asking candidates to answer campaign questions.
  • Voting – Determine the voting method and voter eligibility criteria, and work with staff to determine the voting platform and review voter eligibility requests.
  • Results – Review and announce vote results.

The Committee, staff, and the Board shall collaborate to create a more granular division of responsibilities, as needed. If necessary, the Board shall be the final arbiter of questions or disputes regarding roles and responsibilities. All aspects of the trustee selection process are subject to the Board’s authority, as defined by applicable law, by the Foundation Bylaws, and by other governing documents.

Other elections

The Board may enlist the advice and assistance of the Committee regarding Wikimedia elections for other positions, or other movement-wide votes.


Members serve terms of three years and are appointed by the Wikimedia Foundation Governance Committee, in consultation with sitting members of the Committee.

Advisory members are non-voting members of the Committee serving terms of one year.
