Dear Sugar Labs Members and Friends,

It looks like we are finally getting a slate of candidates for the upcoming
SLOBs election. The Election committee has concurred that we will close
both the candidate list and membership list on January 3, 2016. This is a
firm deadline. The election will take place the week of January 17-23, with
board members terms beginning the first week of February 2016. Candidates
statements must also be posted on the wiki by the January 3 deadline.

The election/membership committee is reviewing the membership list, using
your responses to the survey sent out to all members. The official list for
voting purposes will now include only those who have actually replied that
they want to be active or have applied to the committee for membership. You
still have until Jan 3 to return your survey or apply for membership.

People who replied that they wish to cancel their membership will not
appear on the voter list. People who have not responded have also been
removed. But, if you are one of those people you can be added back to the
list if we get your response by January 3.

Please check the list before January 3 and, if you find any errors with
your name, contact the committee immediately so corrections can be made in
time for the election.


There have been some concerns about the candidates list, with people who
are not members of the election/membership committee adding and taking away
names. As with all wikis, ours allows this. Anyone who is an active member
of Sugar Labs may add their own name as a candidate. If you wish to run,
and are having difficulties with the wiki, please contact the
election/membership committee for help and we will make sure you are
correctly entered.

The list of candidates who have declared intention to run is at the link
below. Each candidate needs to make sure their platform is linked by
January 3.


We also hope that some of you, who have not yet applied for membership,
will consider taking this opportunity to do so by January 3, so you will be
able to cast your votes for your choices of candidates. To join, simply
send a short email message to: samsongoddy at hotmail.com or caryl at
laptop.org (from the election/membership committee), following the
instructions you will find at this link:
