Good evening,

The yearly leadership election for Ubuntu California is coming up. All
three leadership positions are up for election. The rest of this email
has more information on the election, but in short: please send emails
nominating yourself or other people as replies to this email or add
them to the nominations wikipage:


If you have questions, please read the leadership document:


... and post followup questions as replies to this email, or contact
me privately.

Voting will begin in 21 days, see below for details.

=== Timeline ===

* Nomination period begins: now (2014-12-04)
* Nomination period ends: now + 14 days (2014-12-18)
* Election begins: now + 21 days (2014-12-25)
* Election ends, result announced: now + 28 days (2015-01-01)

If there are not enough candidates to fill all positions (plus
preferably additional people so there's a useful election), this
timeline is likely to change.

=== Constituency ===

All members of the Launchpad group at
https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-california are eligible to run and vote
in this election.

=== Position ===

Ubuntu California has a three-person leadership team who make
decisions about issues that cannot be decided by consensus. This
position is required by our leadership document, and helps to prevent
prolonged arguing and indecision.

Team leaders tend to chair our IRC meetings and take point on event
logistics, though this is not an "official" role and we encourage
other people to get involved in these tasks :)

This position is separate from the position of LoCo Group Contact,
which does not expire and is chosen through our normal decision making
processes rather than an election.

=== Nominations ===

Please add nominations of yourself and/or other people to the wikipage at:


You can instead nominate on the mailing list if you'd prefer, and I
will add the relevant details to the wikipage for you.

Nominees must confirm that they accept their nomination. They can
proactively do this by contacting me, and I will contact anyone who
doesn't do so to confirm.

=== Voting ===

Once nominations have been confirmed, I will create a poll on
http://civs.cs.cornell.edu/ . Your ballot will be emailed to the
public email address associated with your Launchpad account. If you do
not receive a ballot within a day or so of the election starting,
please contact me and let me know.

If you have any questions about this process, please feel free to
contact me. Since our next meeting on December 14th falls conveniently
within the nomination period, I will also reserve some time there for
final discussion.
