Nomination period is now closed.
Please wait for the next election cycle to nominate.

The following elections take place in January 2018:

The elected positions cover Fedora's subprojects not under the engineering or outreach banners (Documentation, Translation, etc.), and the community at large. One specific responsibility is to represent the voice of individual contributors to the Fedora project. Each representative will also work on specific goals which she or he brings to the Council as highlighted during the election process.

See Council page for more details regarding Council goals and structure.

Council Elections January 2018

Elections are held twice a year, in concert with the joint Fedora election cycle. One seat is selected at each election, and each position has a two-election (approximately one year) term. No person who currently holds another Council seat can be elected.

The following Council members finish their terms, and the seats are up for re-election:

Mandate of elected nominees
Exceptionally the Fedora Council is accommodating two seats due to Justin's resignation from the Fedora Council. A nominee having the most number of votes is going to be elected for two development cycles. A nominee being on the second position is going to be elected for one development cycle only.
Eligible Voters
Voting eligibility is determined by a community member's Fedora Account System (FAS) memberships.
To vote for the Council you must have cla_done in FAS.
Community Blog Interview
A set of questions for nominees is prepared as Questionnaire. The top 3 selected questions are published in Pagure. Nominees are requested to answer these selected questions using private issue in Pagure. In this way only Election Wrangler and Fedora Action and Impact Coordinator (as election wrangler substitute) are allowed to see these answers. In compliance with Fedora Council decision #135 nominees not having completed their interviews (as a private issue in Pagure) are excluded from the list of nominees.
