The Election Committee regrets to advise that it is necessary to delay
the start of voting in the WMF Elections 2013 for one week. This delay
is being implemented for three reasons:
* We have been unable to verify that the list of eligible voters is
complete and that all voters meet the published criteria
* We have been unable to verify that the SecurePoll setups for the
election are properly functioning
* The voter interfaces have not been translated and are not currently
available in any language other than English, thus disadvantaging
Wikimedians who do not read English.
The following changes are now made to the Election timeline:
*8-22 June 2013: elections
*23-25 June 2013: vote-checking
*25-28 June: publication of results.
