The OCT (OpenACS Core Team) terms of Peter Marklund, Caroline Meeks, Tilmann Singer and Malte Sussdorf are expiring. (This is because they received fewest votes of the 9 members elected in October 2003; their terms end now so that OCT terms are staggered.) This means that 4 seats on OCT are up for election. Those elected will serve until Midnight UTC, 20 April 2005.
Voters and Nominations
Current OCT members, CVS committers and anyone who has posted at least twice to the forums in 90 days to 25 April may vote. The same persons are eligible be candidates for OCT, and may nominate others for this election.
Current OCT members (Peter, Caroline, Tilmann and Malte) are automatically nominated. (Please post here if you refuse the nomination.) For others, two nominations are required to be on the ballot. Nomination takes place by posting on this thread.
(All times are Midnight UTC on the day mentioned.)
Now: Nominations open.
Fri 21 May 2004: Nominations close. Preliminary ballot is published.
Sun 23 May 2004: Ballot is frozen at 23:00 UTC (those who have refused nomination are deleted). Voting begins at Midnight UTC.

We will use the same procedure as last time. Voting occurs by emailing your ballot to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your email may contain the names of up to 4 people from the ballot. Names must be copied verbatim from the ballot. If your email contains more than 4 names, only the first 4 listed are used.
Voters will receive an email ballot after 23:00 UTC on Sunday, 23 May 2004. The ballot will contain a list of all candidates. You may vote by replying to this email, deleting the names of all but 4 candidates.
Votes will by counted by myself and Jarkko Laine. None of us are members of OCT or candidates in this election.
Let the nominations begin!
