As you know, the Board election was due to open on August 4th. Due to some
technical issues with SecurePoll, the election must be delayed by two
weeks. This means we plan to launch the election on August 18th, which is
the day after Wikimania concludes.
For information on the technical issues, you can see the Phabricator
ticket, here <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T287859>.

We are truly sorry for this delay and hope that we will get back on
schedule on August 18th. We are in touch with the Elections Committee and
the candidates to coordinate next steps. We will update the Board election
Talk page and this channel as we know more.
