The electorate for this election are the Foundation individual members that are also committers for one of the official programs projects over the Havana-Icehouse timeframe (April 4, 2013 06:00 UTC to April 4, 2014 05:59 UTC).

Any member of an election electorate can propose their candidacy for the same election (except the six TC members who were elected for a one-year seat last October: Monty Taylor, Russell Bryant, Anne Gentle, Mark McLoughlin, Doug Hellman and Sean Dague). No nomination is required. They do so by sending an email to the openstack-dev@lists.openstack.org mailing-list, which the subject: "TC candidacy" by April 18 05:59 UTC. The email can include a description of the candidate platform. The candidacy is then confirmed by one of the election officials, after verification of the electorate status of the candidate.
