To all registered X.Org members, the 2011 elections are beginning next week for replacing four board member seats this year. The elections will end on the 28th of February for selecting four of six members.

The list of candidates is included below.

- Eric Anholt
- Alan Coopersmith
- Stuart Kreitman
- Bart Massey
- Tiago Vignatti
- Carl Worth

Their personal statements why they are pursuant of becoming a board member is documented on this Wiki page. Two of the candidates are from Intel, two from Oracle, one from Portland State University, and one from Nokia. Though under current board rules, no more than two board members can be associated with one company. Keith Packard of Intel is already sitting on the board, so if these rules stand (Daniel Stone has questioned on the private members mailing list whether this rule is still relevant), one of the Intel candidates may not be qualified. The others serving on the board of directors right now include Alex Deucher, Matthieu Herrb, and Matthias Hopf.

On this Wiki page is a question and answer form that all of these board candidates have been asked to fill out.
