I just went and voted in the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee election. This is the first FESCo election where the number of seats have been changed from 13 to 9. This decrease is meant to create greater competition for seats on this committee.
Numbers have been reported as being low in past Fedora elections. That is why I encourage to take a few minutes out of your day and read over the nominations. Jot down the names of people who interest you with a score next to each. Remember, that Fedora uses range voting; this means that you will vote for each candidate using a numerical score. In the end all scores are summed up and the candidates with the highest scores are the winners. This is really cool, because it means that you can vote for all the candidates if you want to.
Once you have written down the names with the scores, simply head over to the voting booth and place your votes. It’s both fun and educational to do. Not to mention, voting on FESCo is a quick and simple way for you to get involved with the future of Fedora in a very real way.
So join me, and cast your vote today!
