Subject: Wikimedia Foundation elections 2013


Voting has opened for the 2013 elections for the Wikimedia Foundation, which operates projects such as Wikipedia. Eligible voters can vote for candidates for the following positions:

The Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC) makes recommendations about how to allocate Wikimedia movement funds to eligible entities. There are two positions being filled. More information about the candidates can be found at <add link>

The FDC Ombud receives complaints and feedback about the FDC process, investigates complaints at the request of the Board of Trustees, and summarizes the investigations and feedback for the Board of Trustees on an annual basis. One position is being filled. More information about the candidates can be found at <add link>
