The period for self nominations to have name appear on printed ballots is closed.
This is to allow time to print the ballots with the above 16 names. There are spaces for write-in candidates on the paper ballot.

In accordance with the bylaws of Wikimedia NYC, officers (i.e. President, Treasurer, etc.) are selected by the Board, following its appointment.

Election resultsEdit

I was appointed election officer for this election.

Pre-printed ballots were provided listing everyone who had nominated themselves as candidates until the morning of the election. Dues-paying members of Wikimedia NYC were invited to take a ballot. There was an opportunity for those present to pay $5 to become a member. Immediately before the election there was a call for anyone present to nominate themselves as a candidate. No one did this. All candidates were invited to give statements. All candidates were physically present except SheridanFord, Aliceba, Mohamedudhuman05, and Doctorxgc. All of these candidates had a proxy speak on their behalf. There was a call for questions or comments. After this, the voting began. When everyone had voted I collected the ballots and counted the votes. All votes came from members in attendance and there were no proxy votes. 30 people were present. This number included eligible voters who declined to vote, and their blank ballots were not counted. There were 22 votes. All completed ballots were valid. I did not vote myself. The candidates with the most votes were as follows:

  1. Becksguy
  2. BrillLyle
  3. Mozucat
  4. DGG
  5. Megs
  6. Jim.henderson
  7. kosboot
  8. Pharos
  9. Lange.lea
  10. Aliceba
  11. Newyorkbrad
  12. DrX

These candidates are now board officers of Wikimedia NYC serving a one-year term. There were no objections raised to the election process or to the outcome of the election at the event. After the election, it was proposed that officer positions from last term carry over until the board meets to vote again for officers. Thanks for candidates for volunteer to serve on the board and thanks to everyone who voted. Blue Rasberry (talk) 02:00, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
