If you are a registered member of the X.Org Foundation, you have until 11 April to cast your ballot for this year's elections.

There are five members competing for a spot for four seats up for renewal this year on the X.Org Foundation Board of Directors. There is also a vote for the membership agreement for updating it to better reflect the role of the X.Org Foundation.

The five candidates for this year's elections are Matt Turner (Intel), Martin Peres (Intel), Daniel Vetter (Intel), Rob Clark (Red Hat), and Taylor Campbell (MIT).

The elections are running a bit behind schedule as at first they didn't have enough candidates to fill the available slots. The elections run from today through 11 April. If you are a registered X.Org member, be sure to vote as some years they have come close to not meeting quorum during the elections.
