Dear Members,

this is the announcement of the PRELIMINARY results of the voting for the next Board of Directors.

First of all: many thanks to all people who ran for elections!

The number of members who voted is 120, so 91 members did not. In fact the total amount of eligible voters was 211.

I'd also like to say thanks to all the voters. Elections are the most significant moment for a member, what let them differ from anyone else in our community.

With the PRELIMINARY results, elected as member of the Board of Directors, are the following candidates, in this preference order:

Full members:

01. Thorsten Behrens
02. Paolo Vecchi
03. Jan 'Kendy' Holešovský
04. Emiliano Vavassori
05. Caolán McNamara
06. Cor Nouws
07. László Németh


08. Gábor Kelemen
09. Ayhan Yalçınsoy
10. Gabriel Masei

These results were calculated using the same tooling and rules as usual: OpenSTV ( -

The Membership Committee agreed on the ranking of the first six candidates, but is still discussing about the last four candidates.

Unfortunately, given that there are 10 candidates and 10 seats, the version 1.7 of OpenSTV is not proposing more than one round for considering how to rank all the candidates that are not reaching the threshold, but it only considers all the candidates as elected. For more details, see

The Membership Committee will investigate this further, and we will update the members and the general public on this soon.

Before these results can be final, we have the challenging phase from Wednesday, 2021-12-15, 00:00 CET/UTC+1 (beginning of day 15) until Monday, 2021-12-20, 24:00 CET/UTC+1 (end of day 20).

As member you are invited to check your votes as explained after the voting, and with the anonymous token given at that time. It's only you who have that token. The results to verify, for all members who voted, are here

In case you think there is any irregularity or if there are other questions, please contact the Membership Committee AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, and in any case no later than Monday, 2021-12-20, 24:00 CET/UTC+1 (end of day 20), through
