It’s time for the OTW elections!
Elections for the OTW — the nonprofit behind AO3, Fanlore, Transformative Works and Cultures and other projects — start on November 6, and it’s time to make your choice. If you’ve made a donation between October 6, 2014 and October 6, 2015 and chose to become a member, you have the right to vote and choose two directors joining the OTW Board for the next three years.
Here are the candidates:
- Alex Tischer (AO3 Support, Tag Wrangling, Translation)
- Aline Carrão (AO3 Support, Tag Wrangling, Translation)
- Andrea Horbinski (Board of Directors)
- Atiya Hakeem/Lady Oscar (Accessibility, Design & Technology, AO3 Support)
- Katarina Harju (AO3 Abuse, Translation)
- Matty Bowers (AO3 Abuse)
Votes are tallied according to the IRV system (what does this mean?). When it’s time to vote, please rank in order of preference the candidates you want to see win. If you don’t want to support a candidate, don’t rank them at all. There are two seats open for election this year.

Come November 6, if you have the right to vote in the OTW elections, please read up on the issues at stake, choose your candidates, and vote.
