Time again to cast ballots
As promised yesterday, the Election Ballot is now available for registered Java Community Process members to vote in the JCP 2008 Election. Candidates for the SE/EE EC are Intel Corp., Werner Kiel, Matthew McCullough, and Shashank Tiwari. On the ME EC, the candidates are Aplix Corporation, Sean Sheedy, and Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB.
It's interesting to see so many individuals running in this year's elections: 3 out of 4 candidates for the SE/EE seat, and 1 of 3 for the ME seats. There's been a trend towards corporate and organizational membership on the EC's, so we'll see if this year's results turn that trend or maintain it.
Balloting ends November 17.
