Here's the numbers for the last election.

107 Voters

That sounds very little. Aren't we more like at least four times as
many packagers alone? And weren't there even non-packagers admitted to
vote? QA/doc/managment (I hope Max was allowed to vote :) etc?

I don't know how many accounts were entitled to vote in total, but we
probably only had 20-25% of people caring to vote, which looks
bad [1]. How can we improve this mark?

Well, I for one didn't even realize the election took place until I found out that I won a seat -- by way of my getting subscribed to the list. Maybe I missed these FESCo voting announcements but I saw at least 3 or 4 announcements for the board election. It would be interesting to see if the board election had better turnout. If so, I'd say we ought to simply make sure people know there's an election going on. And advertise election dates EARLY.
