Voting period for FOSS4G 2020 Stage 1 is complete. We received votes from:

Eli Adam
Till Adams
Peter Batty
David Bitner
Maria Brovelli
Vasile Craciunescu
Steven Feldman
Gavin Fleming
Darrell Fuhriman
Claude Philipona
Venkatesh Raghavan
Paul Ramsey
Sanghee Shin
Guido Stein
Michael Terner
Msilikale Msilanga
Mark Iliffle

Unless it was lot in transit, we haven't received a vote from:

David Fawcett

All bar one of the voters voted as requested with a combination of +1, 
-1 for each city as requested.

One voter only voted +1 for their preferred city. We counted 0 for the 
other cities for their vote.

The sum of +1,0,-1 votes for each city for stage 1 is:

Halifax: 17

Calgary: 14

Niagara Falls: 0

This means that Halifax and Calgary both qualify to continue to stage 2 
of the RFQ.

I understand that Arnulf is in a poor internet connection area at the 
moment and I haven't been able to discuss and confirm these results with 
him. Hopefully he will be able to reply to confirm the result when he is 
back online.

Thanks to all who participated. Congratulations and best of luck for the 
next stage for Halifax and Calgary.

Niagara Falls participants, maybe you will want to find a way to become 
involved with the other cities.

Warm regards, Cameron (acting as CRO)
