Voting for MakeWP Sustainability Team Representatives 2024

The election to determine the MakeWP Sustainability Team Representatives for 2024 is continuing with a second phase.

In the initial phase, nominations were opened for four team repTeam Rep A Team Rep is a person who represents the Make WordPress team to the rest of the project, make sure issues are raised and addressed as needed, and coordinates cross-team efforts. roles. From the nine nominations received, six individuals stepped forward for consideration. Voting opened on Friday, 13 October.

The subsequent voting process presented several issues. The system allowed individuals to vote multiple times, did not track IP addresses, and limited voters to choosing only two representatives even though four positions were available. These issues led to concerns regarding the reliability of the voting results, which was discussed extensively at team meetings 13 October and 20 October.

To address these concerns and ensure the election’s integrity, the team has decided to hold a revote. Subsequently, two of the original nominees have chosen to withdraw, leaving an equal number of candidates to available positions. However, in light of the challenges faced during the initial voting process, the team has determined that a revote is important to uphold the integrity of the democratic process. We encourage everyone to participate actively and ensure their voices are heard.
