Antoine noted the same lack of transparency at https://discuss.python.org/t/2019-steering-council-election-results/824/3?u=ewdurbin.

Ultimately I chose to initial publish results ASAP at the minimum granularity necessary given that there wasn’t direction on what level of detail should be published. I agree that transparency is key here, but as it wasn’t specified on in 8016/13/8100 I went with what we have.

I can open a PR to 8100 with detailed results if no objections are heard.

As a voter, I can see the full list of how many votes each candidate received. I wonder if this should be published somewhere? There are some interesting speculations possible about the spread of the numbers ,and they give extra data on how the voters seem to think and which (types of) candidates are likely to do well in future elections.

Voting closed at 2019-02-04 12:00 UTC as prescribed in [PEP 8100](https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-8100/).

Of 96 eligible voters, 69 cast ballots.

The top five vote-getters are:

- Barry Warsaw
- Brett Cannon
- Carol Willing
- Guido van Rossum
- Nick Coghlan

No conflict of interest as defined in PEP 13 were observed.

Eligible voters have received result notification emails from helios, and may return to the system to audit/verify the results.

Thanks to all participants! It was an honor serving as the administrator for the governance votes.
