Election System

Elections will be held using CIVS and a Condorcet algorithm (Schulze/Beatpath/CSSD variant). Any tie will be broken using Governance/TieBreaking.


  • April 17 - April 23, 05:59 UTC: Open candidacy for TC positions
  • April 24 - April 30: TC elections

Elected Positions

Under the rules of the TC charter, we need to renew 6 TC seats for this election. Seats are valid for one-year terms.

  • Technical Committee member - 6 positions


The electorate for this election are the Foundation individual members that are also committers for one of the official project teams repositories over the Juno-Kilo timeframe (April 16, 2014 06:00 UTC to April 16, 2015 05:59 UTC).

The electorate is requested to confirm their email address in gerrit, review.openstack.org > Settings > Contact Information > Preferred Email, prior to April 23, 2014 05:59 UTC so that the emailed ballots are mailed to the correct email address.

There is a resolution to the governance repo that all of the electorate is expected to follow: http://governance.openstack.org/resolutions/20140711-election-activities.html


Any individual member of the foundation can propose their candidacy (except the seven TC members who were elected for a one-year seat last October: Monty Taylor, Sean Dague, Doug Hellmann, Russell Bryant, Anne Gentle, John Griffith). Self-nomination is common, no third party 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 23, 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.
