[opensuse-project] Seeking volunteers for the openSUSE Election Committee
With the end of 2011 quickly approaching, the period for elections will
soon be upon us. One of the key elements of the openSUSE elections is
the Election Committee. Without this committee the elections simply
wouldn't function. Your help is needed. Volunteer and assist the
Election Committee.

At the end of the year, we will have elections for three board seats.
Bryen Yunashko's seat is being vacated due to term limits and Pavol
Rusnak and Rupert Horstkotter' are completing their first term, thus
eligible to run for a second term. All board members have a limit of
two consecutive terms.

Election Committee members have the following responsibilities:

- Review current election eligibility rules
- Create a schedule for the campaign and voting periods
- Work with the Membership Team to ensure that all membership
applications are processed in time for voting
- Verify candidate eligibility
- Make appropriate announcements regarding scheduling and voting
- Run the election
- Ensure an effective voting mechanism
- Keep the board informed on progress of election planning
- Resolve any post-election issues

We encourage at least one member of past board election committees to
join the current team in an, at least, advisory capacity. You can read
more about the election process at

If you'd like to join the committee, please send an email to
board@xxxxxxxxxxxx. The deadline for applications to the committee is
30th September 2011.

Thank you,
The openSUSE Board
