Board elections are a chance for the community to help us find the next batch of folks to help us steer the PSF. This year there are 4 seats open on the PSF board. You can see who is on the board currently here. (Kushal, Jannis, Lorena and Marlene are the seats that are timing out.) Nominations for new board members opens today!
- Nominations are open, Wednesday, June 1st 12:00 PM Eastern

Nominations should be made through this form (Note: you will need to sign into or create your python.org user account first). You can nominate yourself or someone else, but no one will be forced to run, so you may want to consider reaching out to someone before nominating them.
You need to be a contributing, managing, supporting, or fellow member by June 15th to vote in this election. Learn more about membership here or if you have questions about membership or nominations please email email@example.com
PS, if you’re curious what the role of PSF director entails, this is a great video that describes it, but also feel free to ask questions here and we will answer them!
Just to clarify: Kushal, Jannis, Lorena and Marlene are at the end of their current terms and are eligible for re-election, in case my wording was confusing for anyone.
The list of nominees was announced, and here’s the link for others who might be trying to get to it.
Board Election Results for 2022!
Congratulations to everyone who won a seat on the PSF Board! We’re so excited to work with you. New and returning Board Directors will start their three year terms this month at the next PSF board meeting. Thanks to everyone else who ran this year and added their voice to the conversation about the future of the Python community. It was a tough race with many amazing candidates.

- Jannis Leidel
- Dawn Wages

Thanks to everyone who voted and helped us spread the word! We really appreciate that so many of you took the time to participate in our elections this year. By the numbers, we sent ballots to 1,459 voting PSF members who then chose among 26 nominees. By the end 578 votes were cast, well over the one third required for quorum.
