Why should you vote?
Voting is one of the benefits members receive after signing up. *It
is also a very impactful benefit to exercise*. The members of the board
get to vote and make decisions on behalf of the PSF community and also help
guide the PSF’s future. Here’s a list of candidates
Electronic votes require us to reach a quorum. Quoted from our bylaws:
“a quorum shall be reached as soon as one-third (1/3) of the members
entitled to vote (the voting members) have cast their vote. If the voting
period ends before a quorum is reached, the vote is declared void.”

Below are updates for this year's ballot.
PSF Board Elections for 2021/22 term
All eligible voters in this year's election should have an email from *Helios
Voting Bot no-reply(a)mail.heliosvoting.org <no-reply(a)mail.heliosvoting.org>* in
their inboxes. Check your spam folders please - I found mine in spam,
unfortunately. Email me directly (ewa(a)python.org) if you need us to re-send
it to you.
We have a great list of candidates this year and I urge everyone to take a
few minutes to vote.
Bylaw updatesWhat happened
Due to human error, the previously proposed bylaw changes did not make it
onto this ballot (
There isn't a way to cancel the vote or update the ballot via Helios.
How it's being rectified
To make sure folks don't accidentally miss the board nomination ballot in
the midst of receiving a second ballot at the same time, it was decided to
send out a second ballot after the board election closes, which is
scheduled to happen June 17th. At that time, the PSF will send out a second
ballot for the bylaw changes - we will send a reminder to the psf-vote@
list when it is sent.
For future ballots the PSF staff and board will put checks and balances in
place so we can avoid these types of errors.
We apologize for the inconvenience!
