I can appreciate chapters wanting their vote to be confidential. However, publishing who has voted seems reasonable - and in line with our other elections (where you can see who voted, but not how they voted).
Since before I served on AffCom, I have heard from affiliates how important it is to them to have a voice in WMF Governance. This is a great opportunity for that, and I am a little disappointed the turnout is, so far, rather low. Seeking these opportunities is less than half the effort, actually utilizing them when offered is perhaps even more important (IMHO). -greg (User:Varnent) > On May 3, 2016, at 8:32 AM, Lane Rasberry <l...@bluerasberry.com> wrote: > > It is possible to self disclose now - it is a wiki.
