Dear all,

I am writing you this email because it's time to vote in The Order Of The
Boriss is "out of office" during some days, so I will explain you the
mechanism following his guideline:
How to vote for the Board elections

Here is a description about how the vote is made for the elections of the


   Each vote is composed by a list of 5 candidates ordered by priority.
   Note that 5 is the size of the board, according to the by-laws.

   No candidate must be listed twice in a single vote.

   Omissions are allowed.

Closing the elections

Once the voting period is closed, candidates are sorted by two parameters
in this order:


   Number of votes

   Arithmetic mean of priority

The first 5 members are elected as the Board.

The only important draw occurs when the Board cannot be determined. For
instance, when there is a draw between the 5th and the 6th position. In
such case, a new election needs to be run as tie-break where votes will be
emitted only for those candidates drawing.

Here is an example of an election with only 2 votes.

*Vote 1*

   1. Zaphod Beeblebrox
   2. Arthur Dent
   3. Trillian
   4. Ford Prefect
   5. Marvin

*Vote 2*

   1. Arthur Dent
   2. Trillian
   3. Slartibartfast
   4. Ford Prefect
   5. Zaphod Beeblebrox

That gives us the following ranking ordered by number of votes, and then by
average priority:

R = Ranking V = Number of votes P = Arithmetic mean priority

R  V   P   Candidate
-  -  ---  -------------------
1  2  1.5  Arthur Dent
2  2  2.5  Trillian
3  2  3.0  Zaphod Beeblebrox
4  2  4.0  Ford Prefect
5  1  3.0  Slartibartfast
6  1  5.0  Marvin

Which means that Marvin is out of the Board. He has the same amount of
votes as Slartibartfast, but Slartibartfast has a better average priority.
Marvin, the paranoid android, probably does not even care. You know, brain
the size of a planet and they ask him to be in a Board.
I will send in a while an email with more information to those members that
can vote ;-)
