2018 Governing Board Election

The OpenJDK Governing Board oversees the structure and operation of the OpenJDK Community. It has two At-Large Members who serve for a term of one calendar year, nominally starting on the first day of April each year.

Nominations for the 2018 term were due by 23:00 UTC on Monday, 12 March 2018.

During this time any OpenJDK Member could nominate an individual who did not currently hold an appointed Governing Board seat to fill one of the At-Large seats. That individual need not already be an OpenJDK Member. An OpenJDK Member could make more than one such nomination.

Candidates

Two individuals were nominated, and each accepted his nomination. The candidates' own statements were as follows:

Results

Voting started at 23:00 UTC on Tuesday, 13 March, and ran for two weeks, ending at 23:00 UTC on Tuesday, 27 March. Secret ballots were used, per the Governing Board's direction.

There were two candidates for two open seats, so per the OpenJDK Community Bylaws this was a ratification election: Each nominee needed to be approved by a Simple Majority of those Members who voted.

The final tallies were:

Yes No Abstain
Andrew Haley 50 0 2
Doug Lea 51 0 1

and so both candidates were ratified.
