<h1>GNOME Foundation Anonymous Voting Referendum</h1>
<p>
Any member of the GNOME Foundation can suggest a referendum. To be
accepted, a request for a referendum must be endorsed by 10% of the
Membership. The overall referendum process is overseen by the
Membership and Elections Committee, which can be reached at <a
href="mailto:elections&#64;gnome&#46;org">elections&#64;gnome&#46;org</a>.
</p>
<p>
In September 2003, the board discussed a possible move toward an anonymous
voting scheme for the annual GNOME Foundation board of directors elections
and brought it to the members on <a
href="http://mail.gnome.org/archives/foundation-list/">foundation-list&#64;gnome&#46;org</a>.
After much discussion, it was agreed that there was significant objection to
this so that the GNOME Foundation should hold a referendum to decide
whether future elections should use an anonymous voting mechanism.
