[Foundation-l] Don't waste your vote!

I am writing to ask all of you to think carefully when you vote.

The board election is very important and many good people are running.

But it is better for Wikipedia's future to keep a bad person off than
to have the best people on.

There are three seats open. When you make your three choices if you
think only to choose the best you risk making an opening for someone
bad, so '''you must also consider who can win'''.

Look at the endorsements:

It is clear that only some have the standing to keep
a bad person off the board. So even if you know in your heart that
someone else is better, you should not pick them because if you do
your vote is WASTED.

If you have already voted and made the error of picking the wrong people you
can still change your vote but you must do it right away before the
election closes.
