The certified results of the 2015 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees
election are now available on Meta-Wiki:

Congratulations to Dariusz Jemielniak (User:pundit), James Heilman
(User:Doc James), and Denny Vrandečić (User:Denny), for receiving the most
community support. They will join the Wikimedia Foundation as Trustees,
after they are appointed by the Board at their July meeting at Wikimania.

These results have been certified by the committee, the Wikimedia
Foundation's legal department, and the Board of Trustees.

There were 5512 votes cast, with 5167 of those being valid. The 345-vote
difference comes from recast ballots, where eligible voters recast ballots
to change their votes, and struck votes, of which there were 4.

Additional information is available on the Wikimedia Blog:

More statistics on the elections, a post mortem from the committee, and a
blog post on the process behind the elections will be published  in the
coming days. In the meantime, we would appreciate your input—what went well
for you in this election?  What could we do better next time?  These
reports are crucial to helping future elections be even more successful,
and we hope that you will offer your feedback and ideas:

The committee thanks everyone that participated in this year’s election for
helping make it one of the most diverse and representative in the
movement’s history.
