Affiliate-selected Board seats/2019/Nominations

This page lists candidates for the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees in the 2019 Affiliate Selected Board seats process. Nominations can be added from April 15 to April 30, 2019. Translations of election statements are particularly welcome.

  • Nominees: please consider submitting as soon as possible to allow enough time for translations. Try to use simple language and short sentences to make the translators' work easier.
  • Please keep the résumé + statement at max 500 words combined. It would be ideal if endorsements could also be included in that number.
  • As translations need to start soon after publishing your page, please consider your page final once it's published.
  • Questions to candidates should be posted and answered on the relevant page. Candidates are strongly encouraged to answer posted questions, including questions from the question pool and individually asked questions.
  • Endorsement statements from organizations should be made directly on the candidate pages in the appropriate section by the official voter. Per the current Resolution, "Each nominee must have two (and only two) endorsements from any type of Affiliate in order to be a valid/validated candidate.", and "Each affiliate can endorse no more than two candidates." [1]



11 candidates will appear on the ballot. Only user:Yithello did not receive two endorsements and will not appear on the ballot.


  1. Endorsements from individuals should not be made on candidate pages.
