Intro to Elections

The Mozilla Reps program has been a volunteer driven program since day 1. In that spirit the core governing body of the program, the Council, was designed to be an elected body with new members chosen by all Reps every six months.

More background about the history of the Council and its structure can be found here and here and you can find a visualization of the composition and detailed information about the elections process.

The time has come for a new round of elections and this time 4 positions need to be filled. Nikos , Majda, Guillermo and Sayak are reaching the end of their 12-month terms and their seats need to be replaced for another 12-month term.

Nominations are open as of today for Mozilla Reps mentors that are eligible (see criteria)
