Voting Phase for the OCP C&I Special Election Now Open

The voting phase for the OCP C&I Special Election starts today, 15 June and remain open until 26 June at 24:00 (CDT).


Participants will be able to choose between the following nominees:

  • Anita Kou (ITRI) and David Woolf (UNH-IOL)

  • Matt Peterson

One of the most important volunteer roles we have in the OCP community is that of the Project Lead and we thank all the past, current and future project leads for their willingness to encourage, empower, and inspire the OCP project communities to communicate, collaborate and contribute!

Who is eligible to vote?

Any OCP member (individual or corporate) who has created a profile on the website and indicated they were active in the C&I project can vote.  By creating a profile on the website you are signing the individual membership agreement. If you belong to a corporate member organization please use your organizational email address. Please note that your corporate organizational membership will take precedence over the individual one. No one organization can have more than 10% of the total vote. If an organization has more than 10% it will be notified and the point of contact for that organization will be asked to choose who from the list will be sent keys.  

How do I vote?

Eligible Voters will receive an email which will guide them through how to vote. Once the poll has started no emails can be added to the list. If you believe you should have received a voting key for the C&I Special Election and did not, please contact, Amber Graner.  Please note you must have created a profile on the website and inndicated that you were active in the C&I project prior to 15 June to be eligible to vote.

What is the voting tool that is used?

We use the Condercet Internet Voting Service (CIVS) which was developed by Cornell University. CIVS is a free Internet voting service that makes it easy to conduct polls. Each voter ranks a set of possible choices. Individual voter rankings are combined into an anonymous overall ranking of the choices.

More information about our governance process can be found here.

Again, the Foundation would like to thank all of those who have been nominated.  None of our successes would be possible without the support and participation of you and your organizations.
