Hyperledger Technical Steering Committee Election

Boa tarde Chapter Brasil,


Each year Hyperledger elects a new Technical Steering Committee that drives the technical governance across Hyperledger projects. Voting for this year's Technical Steering Committee election starts on October 1 and closes on October 15. 


Checking if you are eligible

We ask that everyone take a couple of minutes now to confirm you are showing up correctly in the voter rolls so you can participate when the voting starts (if you are eligible to participate).


Voting is open to any community member who has contributed in the last 12 months. We have exported information about who has contributed, but it is important you confirm we have the correct data.  It is possible that our information includes a different email address than you would prefer and it is possible your contribution is not showing up in our export.


To check your eligibility:

  1. Visit the Hyperledger Voter Eligibility Check and check your email address. https://labs.hyperledger.org/voters/


If the information we have for you is incorrect or if you're not showing up, please email election@...  and we will help.


Submitting a Nomination

The election will include active contributors who have been nominated to run as candidates.  We are now opening the call for nominations and this process will run through September 17.


To nominate someone:

  1. First ask them to confirm that they would like to be nominated

  2. Then use the following email template with the subject line "TSC election nomination" and send it to election@...:


Dear Election Committee,
