Hello everyone,

I am pleased to announce the Steward Elections 2021 [1]. We are now taking nominations from eligible candidates. Interested candidates can check their eligibility and procedure to submit the nomination on the guidelines page [2]. We are open to candidate submissions till January 31, 2021, 23:59 (UTC).

As always, the confirmation of existing stewards [3] will take place at the same time as the election, which begins on February 5, and will finish on February 26, 2021.

Please remember, the voting has not yet begun and will not until February 5, 2021, 14:00 (UTC). We will poke you once again when the voting starts.

If you have any questions regarding the elections, feel free to contact me or any other member of the Election Committee. You can also ask any question in the #wikimedia-stewards-elections-chat IRC channel, or watch updates in #wikimedia-stewards-elections.

Best regards,

Martin Urbanec

(On behalf of the Election Committee)
