Hi Everyone,

On behalf of ESEAP, I would like to express our utmost gratitude to the candidates who went to our town hall meeting earlier. 

We greatly appreciate as well for candidates who attended and also who were not able to come to put their responses to our town hall questions on the meta talk page.


Thank you.

Kind regards,

Butch Bustria

Thank you Quim.

Hi Everyone,

In light of this development, ESEAP (East, Southeast Asia and the Pacific) will hold a special meeting on August 8, Sunday at 02:00 UTC (Saturday evening in the Americas).

Election candidates are free to join in this event and we will simply do a typical town hall where our regional community members ask question to the candidates.

Kind regards,

Butch Bustria

Hello, all.

(You can read this announcement in other languages on https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation_elections/2021/2021-08-02/Delay_of_the_2021_Board_of_Trustees_election )

We are reaching out to you today regarding the 2021 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election. This 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

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 Telegram channel as we know more. We are translating this announcement on Meta and we are starting the mass distribution of the news as we speak.
