OSGeo Charter Members,

The voting period for the OSGeo 2011 Board Election [1] 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 
2011" and coming from cro at osgeo.org)

IMPORTANT: If you did not receive the personal email with voting 
instructions then please contact us at cro at osgeo.org so that we can sort 
out the situation ASAP.

Here is some additional information about the vote (also included in the 
personal email):
