Hi Andreas,

Thanks for your email. Community members can upvote the statements for the
Election Compass
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation_elections/2022/Community_Voting/Election_Compass/Statements>
on Meta-wiki. The Elections Committee needed more time to review the
statements than anticipated. Voting opened on July 25. To address this
delay, the Elections Committee and the Board Selection Task Force will
extend the community voting on Election Statements through August 3.

Best,


Jackie
