SubjectRe: Linux Foundation Technical Advisory Board Elections and Nomination process
Final reminder and update:

The TAB elections will be held at 6:00pm tomorrow evening, Monday
October 26th during the evening booth-crawl and reception in the Park
Studio room. We will start at 6:00 sharp. Don't be late.

1) Welcome and brief summary of what the TAB does

4) Candidate statements. Candidates will each have 1 minute to make a
brief statement. Candidates who are unable to attend can provide a
written statement to be read out.
5) Review of polling procedure
6) Polling

The doors to the room will be closed at the start of polling. You must
be in the room by that time if you intend to cast a ballot. Polling
will be conducted by secret paper ballot and a privacy shield will be
provided. Voters must exit the room after casting their ballot.

Counting shall be performed by 2 or 3 neutral people after polling has
completed. Results will be provided by email to the mailing lists
later that same evening.
