[board-discuss] Preliminary Results for the 2016 Membership Committee election

Dear members,

with the vote closing last night, we've now processed the results
using OpenSTV, and I'm hereby announcing the preliminary results ready
for review, pending confirmation next Sunday.

The number of members that casted their votes is 120, 64 members did
not. The board thanks all candidates for running, and all voters for
their participation!


Candidates are sorted in their order of election preference, after all
preferences have been considered according to the Meek STV method with
Droop-Dynamic-Fractional setting, default threshold.

Elected Members:
Cor Nouws & Katarína Behrens (tied for first)
Gustavo Buzzatti Pacheco
Gabriele Ponzo
Miklos Vajna

Elected Deputies:
Stephan Bergmann
Klaus-Jürgen Weghorn
Charles-H. Schulz
Antonio Faccioli


The detailed results of running OpenSTV can be found at
and a list of all votes cast is available at

You can run the calculation yourself using OpenSTV from; the machine-readable votes are at and the
preference ordering is achieved by sorting according to the order of
election (from top to bottom, look for 'elected' in the results
table). If there is more than one candidate elected in one step, their
actual voting count determines their rank order.

Any eligible voter may challenge the preliminary results by mailing prior to 2016-09-17, 24:00 CET/UTC+2
with a detailed explanation of their challenge.

The board encourages every voter to now validate correct entry of
their ballot by comparing the matching row from

with your vote - the anonymous token shown to you at the end of the
vote process needs to show up in that list, and the list of names
associated with that token has to match your ballot.

With best regards,

Thorsten Behrens,
on behalf of The Document Foundation board of directors
