OpenSolaris Election for new OGB and New Constitution is open now!
By Bubbva-Oracle on Mar 18, 2010
The OpenSolaris community elections are well underway, yet we are still very low (in my opinion) with the number of people that have actually cast ballots! Everyone who has accepted a core contributor grant is expected to cast a ballot, though it is not required that you vote for both the candidates and the constitution in order to have a valid ballot. Out of the 428 eligible voters, only 270 have cast a vote.
The out going OpenSolaris Governing Board (OGB) worked very hard on the new constitution which requires a majority of the eligible voters to approve it in order to pass. While more than a majority have logged in a cast a ballot, we missed passing last years constitution by only a handful of votes, so I'd really like to see our number of voters hitting 300-350. Really, there's not much else a core contributor grant gives you, right now, in the community other than the right to vote in the annual election.
So, if you are a core contributor (or not sure if you are or not), please hop on over to the polling place and cast your ballot in this critical election. (if you're not eligible, the system won't let you vote ;)
Thank you! Valerie
