We have received eight nominations from individuals wishing to join the UK OGN Steering Committee.
John Alexander McFadyen
Michelle Brook (for relection)
Gavin Freeguard (for relection)
We now move to the voting period that will last for two weeks, from today until the end of the day on 4th February 2019. The vote is via a Borda Count - you will be asked to rank the candidates by preference. To meet the OGN’s 1:2 gender balance requirement, the highest scoring female candidate will be automatically selected, even if they do not fall within the top three candidates overall. The same may be carried out to achieve a balance of individual citizens and representatives of civil society organisations of at least 1:4.
To ensure transparency, the total scores of each candidate will be published. Vote here.
WHO CAN VOTE
As per the OGN’s Terms of Reference, all members of the Open Government Network are entitled to vote to select steering committee members. You will be asked to confirm your name and membership of the OGN to confirm your eligibility to vote. All members of the OpenGovUK email list are considered to be members of the OGN. Candidates are entitled to vote themselves.
