Any [http://governance.openstack.org/reference/charter.html individual member of the foundation] can propose their candidacy (except the [https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/TC_Elections_September/October_2015#Results six] TC members who were elected for a one-year seat in October).
Nominees propose their candidacy by submitting a text file to the openstack/election repository. The file must be placed in candidates/<cycle>/TC/<candidate_name>.txt. The candidacy is then confirmed by elections officials through gerrit vote. See documentation below.
==== How to submit your candidacy ====
If you are not already familiar with OpenStack development workflow, see this more detailed documentation:  http://docs.openstack.org/infra/manual/developers.html
Candidacies now need to be submitted as a text file to the openstack/election repository. Here are the required steps:
* Clone the election repository: git clone git://git.openstack.org/openstack/election ; cd election
* Create a new file candidates/mitaka/TC/<your_name>.txt containing your candidate statement
* NOTE: please include you IRC nick somewhere in the review (either in the candidate statement or commit message)
* Commit your candidacy: git add candidates/mitaka/TC/*.txt; git commit -m "Adding <your_name> candidacy for TC"
* Submit your candidacy: git review
After it's submitted to gerrit, verification and approval is being done by elections officials. Then the approved candidate list below is updated.
