OSGeo Charter Members,
The voting period for the OSGeo 2011 Board Election  is now open, and
voting will close at 23:59 (your time zone) on Sunday August 21, 2011.
To help make this process as easy as possible, we are using a very
simple online form to collect your votes. The site also allows us to
enforce the vote limit, and at the same time to update the contact
information that we have for our charter members. Note that you still
have the opportunity to vote via email the old fashioned way if you
prefer, please see instructions below.
All charter members should have received a personal email with voting
instructions a few hours ago, including your personal link to submit
your votes online. (Email subject "Please vote for OSGeo Board Election
