[We are restarting this ballot after I corrected errors in a prior version – the Discussion Period starts Wed. Sept. 12 at 11:00 am Eastern Time]

This is a special ballot for election of SCWG Vice Chair for a term to run Nov. 1, 2018 – Oct. 31, 2020.

As you know, only one candidate has been nominated:

1. Wayne Thayer

Bylaw 4.2(c) provides: “If a single individual is nominated for a position, the Forum will hold a ballot to confirm appointment of the nominee.”  Because there is only one candidate for this position, this Ballot is to “confirm appointment” of Wayne Thayer as Vice Chair of the Server Certificate Working Group for a two year term running Nov. 1, 2018 through October 31, 2020.  Voting will start on Sept. 19, and votes will be “yes”, “no”, or “abstain”.

Optional Proposer and Endorsers: As you know, there is disagreement on whether an election ballot under Bylaw 4.1 requires a Proposer and two Endorsers to proceed (I believe they do not).  If you believe we need a Proposer and two Endorsers, please post your name on the Public list and volunteer to fill those roles on our two election ballots – the first Member to post will be added as the Proposer and the next two Members to post will be added as Endorsers.

If we do not get a Proposer and two Endorsers for this Ballot, we will proceed with the ballot anyway.  The deadline for volunteering is Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2018 at 11:00 am Eastern Time.

Proposer’s name:
Endorser 1’s name:
Endorser 2’s name:

Discussion Period:  We will start a one week discussion period on Wed. Sept. 12 at 11:00 am Eastern Time and continue through Wed. Sept. 19 at 11:00 am Eastern Time, during which time the sole candidate may send out an optional email to the Forum Members on the Management list summarizing his candidacy and qualifications. Members are free to ask questions at any point in the election process.

Voting Period: We will then have a one week voting period starting Wed. Sept. 19 at 11:00 am Eastern Time and continuing through Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 11:00 am Eastern Time.  Members who wish to vote should post their vote as “yes”, “no”, or “abstain” on the Public list by the deadline.

This is SEPARATE from the election we are now holding for the Vice Chair of the CA/Browser Forum (CABF), where there are two candidates.

If you have questions, please contact me.
