This document describes the schedule and other details of the January 2019 election for the Python steering council, as specified in PEP 13. This is the first steering council election.
In future elections, the returns officer will be appointed by the outgoing steering council. Since this is the first election, we have no outgoing steering council, and PEP 13 says that the returns officer is instead appointed by the PSF Executive Director, Ewa Jodlowska. She appointed Ernest W. Durbin III.
There will be a two-week nomination period, followed by a two-week vote.
The nomination period is: January 7, 2019 through January 20, 2019
The voting period is: January 21, 2019 12:00 UTC through February 4, 2019 12:00 UTC (The end of February 3, 2019 Anywhere on Earth)
