Next Steps

In the coming weeks, before the start of the final election, the BMSPC will organize activities and mechanisms that facilitate interactions between the At-Large Community Members and the Final Slate of Candidates.

In accordance with the selection timeline, the first round of voting in the final election will be initiated on Tuesday, February 21, 2017. Any internal RALO decision making processes, such as confirming the electorates and directing RALO Chairs' votes in the final election, should be conducted and completed before 21 February. The selection process is planned to be completed by Friday, April 21, 2017, with the announcement of the successful Candidate on that date.
