Fedora Magazine: Fedora August 2017 election change

As seen earlier this week, the Fedora community holds elections in several groups. One group that elects seats this month is the Fedora Ambassador Steering Committee (FAMSCo).

The FAMSCo election started along with others this week. However, due to a technical error, the voting system prevented some eligible people from voting. Contributors have now fixed this issue. Fedora Program Manager Jan Kurik announced the issue and the fix on the Ambassadors’ mailing list.

What does this mean?

Of course the project wants to ensure the election is open and fair for all. Therefore, the FAMSCo election will restart next week. The new voting period begins on Tuesday, August 15 at 0000 UTC (click the link for local time). It ends on Monday, August 21 at 2359 UTC.

Votes from the original FAMSCo election do not count. Only the new votes are valid. So if you voted in the original election, you must vote again to be counted.

What about other elections?

As mentioned in the announcement, the Fedora Council and FESCo elections continue unaffected. The announcement here contains additional details.
