2014 Global Board of Directors Election

Election FAQ
Q. Who is eligible to vote?
A. All paid or honorary members who's membership was active on 9/30/2014 should have already received their ballot via email.
Q. I'm a member. Why didn't I get a ballot?
A. Possible Causes:

  • For Individual Members - at the date the 'eligible voter' list was created (30 September 2014) your membership had not been renewed.
  • For Honorary Members - Honorary membership status must be actively renewed each year. If your honorary membership expired, and you did not actively renew by the 'eligible voter' date you were not included on the list.
  • Unsubscribe Issue. The voting instructions and link to ballot were sent out by the Simply Voting application. If you previously chose "Unsubscribe" to other emails sent from OWASP via Simply Voting, then you were 'not sent' the voter instruction email by the unsubscribe rule.

Q. I didn't get notification to renew or did not realize I needed to renew. I still want to vote! What do I do?

  • The current voting period will remain open and it will be extended until October 31, 2014. We know that 1,956 names were on the list who received voting instructions and 463 (23%) have already voted.
  • For the 'missed members': We will open a special 'grace period' for the people who did not renew their membership in the 90 days before the Sept. 30, 2014 eligibility cutoff. Some may have done this by choice, others claim they did not receive renewal information.
  • Anyone who renews during this grace period ending Oct. 24 will become eligible to vote in the 2014 OWASP Board election. They will be sent the same voting instructions as the original 1,956. It will include the notice that voting is extended through the week of Oct. 27 - 31.
  • If you were a member as of 9/30/2014 but have not yet received your ballot please Contact Us.
