Subject: [opencsa-ms] Open CSA Steering Committee Special Election -- Voting Open


Greetings Open CSA Member Section Members,
The Open CSA Member Section Steering Committee Election is now open; voting closes 11:45 PM EDT on 24-June-2008.
For this special election, the Member Section will elect two new Steering Committee members, one to fill a two-year term and one member to serve a one year term. The one candidate receiving the highest ranked votes will serve the two-year term. The candidate receiving the second highest ranked votes will serve a one-year term.
Each Open CSA Supporting Entity has one Qualified Elector who casts the single vote on behalf of his/her organization. Unless otherwise designated, the organization's Primary Rep serves as the Qualified Elector, http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/Open CSA-ms/members/roster.php. Each Supporting Entity has one vote, which will be accepted from the Voting Member shown on the roster.  The default Voting Member is the Supporting
Entity's Primary Contact -- the Primary may defer the voting member role to another employee member by an email to member-services@oasis-open.org, any such change should be in place before the ballot is cast.


To insure that all members and observers in this member section understand the election process, the voting instructions are as follows:
Cast your vote by email to sc-election@oasis-open.org, your message should be your ranked preference for the candidates.  Start with 1, continuing until you have no further preference for the remaining candidates.  
1 First Candidate name
2 Second Candidate name
Your candidates are alphanumerically listed:
Bob Freund
Patrick Leonard
Michael Rowley
The candidate’s profiles may be found at:
The voting will be by email, with the results tallied via the Single Transferable Voting (STV) - Scottish Method.
See http://stv.sourceforge.net/Details.html and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singel_transferable_vote.
STV considers your ranked preference for candidates in order to more accurately reflect the wishes of the electorate. In summary, as candidates who you voted for as a top choice win, their excess votes (over what was needed to win) are transferred according to your preferences. 
Remember, vote by email to sc-election@oasis-open.org. Deadline is 11:45 PM EDT on 24-June-2008.
Feel free to ask any questions about the process.
Best regards,
Dee Schur
