2020 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 2020 term were due by 23:00 UTC on Monday, 16 March 2020.

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.

Results

Voting started on Tuesday, 24 March 2020 12:01am UTC and ran for two weeks, ending Monday, 6 April 2020 11:59am UTC. Secret ballots were used, per the Governing Board's direction.

There were four candidates for two open seats, so per the OpenJDK Bylaws two winners were selected via Single Transferable Vote (STV), specifically the Meek algorithm.

The winners were Andrew Haley and Christian Thalinger.

Details describing how votes were tallied may be found in the election results page.
